In 1951 the armchair PK25 was the final work of designer legend Poul Kjærholm at the Applied Arts School in Copenhagen. And with that the origin of his big design career in which he was promoted next to Arne Jacobsen, Poul Henningsen, Verner Panton and Hans Wegner as the most important agents of the Danish design.
Already during his diploma work, the maxim of Poul Kjaerholm’s designs for seating furniture was that they were obliged to the classic modern. He lowered their strong functionalism by softer forms as well as the Scandinavian typical usage of natural materials such as wood, leather or tube-braiding.
The steel base of the armchair is made of one steel piece and is bent in a way, that the seat and the back wrap around the bent base with a long piece of flag-line. The base is made of matt chromed fiber glass. The flag-line consists of hemp with nylon-core.
