Poul Kjaerholm Chaise Lounge, model PK24
Fritz Hansen, Denmark
stainless steel, leather with manufacturer's label
This vintage PK24 chaise lounge from Fritz Hansen's "Poul Kjaerholm collection". Simple elegance, a typical Kjærholm design - with the combination of steel and leather with an adjustable, leather headrest - in an exclusive and minimalist design. The discrete and elegant PK24 chaise stands as an icon for Poul Kjærholm's work.
Poul Kjærholm had a particular interest in various construction materials; especially steel, which he considered a natural material. He was a trained carpenter who continued studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He moved on to work at Fritz Hansen, for about a year, where he designed a number of noteworthy chair prototypes. In 1955, Kjærholm started collaborating with manufacturer Ejvind Kold Christensen, which lasted until his death in 1980.
The PK24 chaise is adjustable and based on a satin-brushed stainless steel frame, it is upholstered in leather and has a matching adjustable leather headrest with a counter-weight in steel.
Dimensions: H 34 x W 60 x D 26 inches
