Poul Kjærholm

Poul Kjærholm

Poul Kjærholm (1929-1980) designed modern, functional furniture that was praised for its understated elegance and clean lines. He was a trained carpenter by 1948 and continued his studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen where he would later teach, from 1952-56. He went on to become a lecturer and professor in the furniture and interior design department at the Academy of Art from 1957-76.

 

Kjærholm had a particular interest in different construction materials; especially steel which he considered a natural material with the same artistic fineness as other natural materials. Kjærholm was employed at Fritz Hansen for about a year, where he designed a number of noteworthy prototypes including the PK22 easy chairs, the PK61 coffee table and the PK80 daybed. In 1955 Poul Kjærholm initiated his collaboration with manufacturer Ejvind Kold Christensen, which lasted until Kjærholm's death in 1980.
