PK20 chair, 1968

PK20 chair by Poul Kjaerholm for Fritz Hansen.

The classic PK20 designed by Poul Kjaerholm in 1968, is a laid-back and elegant lounge chair built upon a flexible spring steel frame.

The original idea for the chair was to use the excess leather strips from the production of other leather furniture to optimise production. The idea was however rejected because the leather strips were too different, and currently, it is only the finest leather strips that are used. The PK20 is part of the permanent collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

The history of Fritz Hansen begins in 1872, where Danish cabinet-maker Fritz Hansen from Nakskov obtains a trade license in Copenhagen.

In 1885 he starts a furniture production company of his own and within two years manages to establish a flourishing workshop - in central Copenhagen – where quality is already a priority.. Early on in the century, the forward-looking Christian E. Hansen, son of Fritz Hansen, starts to experiment with steam bending beech. In the Thirties, the technique is so refined that Fritz Hansen is among the world leaders in the field, which later evolves into the firm’s specialty: Furniture created in laminate wood.
