Fritz Hansen PK8 Chair
For many years, the PK8™ existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjærholm, the wife of Poul Kjærholm. Today, it’s widely recognised as a striking execution of Scandinavian craftsmanship. Its unique threelegged form and sinuous curves give it an expression all its own.

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.
