A historic piece beautifully refined, whether used for lounging, reclining or seating, the PK80™ Daybed is perhaps one of Kjaerholm's most elegant and recognizable designs. Eliminating all unnecessary elements, the PK80™ expresses Kjaerholm's method for simplifying furniture to its very essence whilst demonstrating character through the materials used. A combination of expert craftsmanship and superior design, the result is a striking piece of fundamental geometry, upholstered in sumptuous leather and carried by a base of satin-brushed stainless steel. A true masterpiece of modern design, the PK80™ Daybed now features in the Museum of Modern Art, rightfully acknowledged as one of the most iconic pieces in furniture history.
Poul Kjaerholm 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.
