The PK25 Lounge Chairwas designed by Poul Kjærholm in 1951, for his final graduation project at the School of Applied Arts in Copenhagen. The PK25 Lounge Chair, also known as the “Element” chair, is a fine example of the young Kjærholm’s eagerness to work with common, industrial materials. Kjærholm was determined to reduce the chair to a single piece of each material, resulting in the overarching hallmark of the chair: The continuous and rather complex steel frame that is bent in a single piece without joints and connections. There is a braided rope wrapped around the frame for a tight but flexible seat and backrest, which has been turned for relaxation. This unique and stylish chair is complementary to any modern interior and is beautiful on its own, or in a group of numerous PK25 lounge chairs
Poul Kjærholm was a trained carpenter and continued his studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He had a particular interest in different construction materials; especially steel which he considered a natural material with the same artistic fineness as other natural materials. Poul Kjærholm was employed at Fritz Hansen for about a year, where he designed a number of noteworthy chair prototypes. In 1955 Poul Kjærholm initiated his collaboration with manufacturer Ejvind Kold Christensen, which lasted until Poul Kjærholm's death in 1980. In 1982, Fritz Hansen took over the production and sales of "The Kjærholm Collection", developed from 1951 to 1967, designs, which are logical to the minute detail with an aura of exclusivity. In 2007 Fritz Hansen added two new pieces to the Kjærholm Collection. Pieces that were never in production before, the PK8™ side chair and PK58™ dining table.
