PK80 daybed, 1957

PK80 daybed by Poul Kjaerholm for Fritz Hansen

In an ongoing attempt to unite the sublime with the absolutely necessary, Poul Kjærholm designed the PK80 daybed. The result is one of Kjærholm’s most sophisticated and iconic designs with striking beauty.

The daybed is a clear illustration of Poul Kjærholm’s method of refining historical models and distilling them down to the essence and demonstrating his superior ability to balance construction and choice of materials. The inspiration for the daybed came from Bauhaus, which in turn, were inspired by ancient Roman couches.

The purchase of the PK80 for the galleries of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, in 2004, recognises the daybed’s natural place in furniture history.

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.
