his charismatic PK22 ™ armchair and the coffee table PK61 ™ They were designed in 1956, Fritz Hansen celebrates this anniversary by joining them in an exclusive set. The anniversary set Poul Kjærholm presents these classics in new finishes, faithfully contruidos according to the designer's own philosophy, in which their beautiful designs should last over time.
Presented in the 1956 year, the PK22 ™ armchair was immediately successful both commercially and critically. Thanks to the craft processes and the great design of this piece, in 1957 he won the Grand Prix at the XI Triennale of Milan, and in 1958 he won the Lunning Prize, the most prestigious art and design award in the Scandinavian countries. The PK22 ™ is made with one piece for the seat and back upholstered in leather upper of Royal Nubuck suede and steel structure made by hand anthracite gray color.
Kjærholm created the PK1956 ™ coffee table at 61 to complement the PK22 ™ armchair, one of his first designs and which laid the foundation for his philosophy. Despite the extreme distillation of the structure in a set of identical elements governed by the geometry and structural properties of the materials, the table shows the evolution of Kjaerholm from industrial designer to furniture architect. The PK61 ™ anniversary table top is in Petra marble, a beautiful and high-end durable surface.
