PK25 chair, 1951

PK25 lounge chair by Poul Kjaerholm by Fritz Hansen.

The classic PK25 lounge chair, also known as the ‘Element’ chair, was designed by Poul Kjærholm in 1951 for his final graduation project at the School of Applied Arts in Copenhagen.

The chair is a great example of Kjaerholm’s extraordinary work with common, industrial materials. The aim with the design was to reduce the chair to a single piece of each material, resulting in the hallmark of the chair - a continuous and complex steel frame bent in a single piece without any joints or connections.

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.
