Fritz Hansen PK71 Nesting Table
PK71™ consists of three nesting tables that can be stored under each other. With these tables and their ongoing 3-dimensional shape was Poul Kjærholm showing the square in all 3 dimensions in his work for the first time.
They can be seen as a precursor to his larger and more complex tables. With their toy-like appearance is the small, abstract tables very dynamic and they invites you to move them around. Poul Kjærholm often stacked the bare frames as sculptural symbols to illustrate the elementary properties of his other works.
The importance of PK71 is shown by the fact the tables are displayed in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New

Through his important work as an architect and teacher, Poul Kjærholm is regarded a central figure in international furniture design. Kjærholm combined his modern form language with an uncompromising approach to materials and quality, strongly rooted in the Danish tradition of craftsmanship. At the same time, he was deeply inspired by the German Bauhaus School and the Dutch De Stijl movement, represented by painter Piet Mondrian, among others. Designers Gerrit Rietveld, Mies van der Rohe and Charles Eames also greatly influenced Kjærholm's work.
