PK0 A chair, 1952

PK0 A chair by Poul Kjaerholm by Fritz Hansen.

To celebrate its 150-year anniversary, Fritz Hansen is reintroducing the PK0 A chair, an icon of modernist design.

Designed in 1952 by legendary Danish designer Poul Kjærholm during his tenure at Fritz Hansen, the chair is sculptural while being functional, showcasing the designer's immense talent.

With only 600 pieces in circulation until now, Fritz Hansen is launching the mid-century modern design icon in two beautiful finishes. The chair challenged the manufacturing techniques of its time and was inspired by the sculptural works of Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Jean Arp, as well as the Japanese and American design movements of the time.

Experimenting with plywood and stretching its limit to the absolute, the chair is timeless and a must-have. This re-issue of the chair is offered in Oregon pine and black-coloured ash, both of which are fitted with cinnabar red spacers as a contrast to the wood.

Beautiful from all angles, the chair is a mid-century modern icon befitting any modern interior setting and sure to be a statement piece in any room.

“The PK0 A stands out in design history. In the early 1950s, Poul Kjærholm challenged our perception of the construction of a chair. Two moulded forms, each sculptural in shape, connected by a simple spacer create a comfortable chair with no defined frame or base. The design continues to inspire with its durable aesthetics, function and beauty,”
- Marie-Louise Høstbo, Head of Design at Fritz Hansen.
