PK8 chair, 1978

PK8 chair by Poul Kjaerholm for Fritz Hansen.

Classic Poul Kjaerholm chair, the PK8 chair was originally designed in 1978 but not put into production until much later. For many years the PK8 existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjærholm, the wife of Poul Kjærholm. The PK8 was put into production and introduced to the public in connection with the Poul Kjærholm exhibition at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in 2007.

The special form of the chair, with its composition of sinuous curves, resembles Kjærholm’s cantilevered chair from 1953, but the three legs, which shape compliments the seating element, give the chair a remarkable expression of its own.

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

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.
