Poul Kjaerholm's Early Stroke of Genius

In 1951, Poul Kjaerholm created his PK25 Lounge Chair for his graduation project with a single flat piece of steel plate and a metal saw to carve the chair pattern, and then bent the chair into shape.  At the time, I’m sure he was excited to get an outstanding grade for his design, but little did he know that his PK25 Lounge Chair would remain in demand in the following decades.

Our PK25 Lounge Chair Reproduction uses the exact same chair pattern, but instead of using a metal saw, we are able to use modern laser cutting equipment and hydraulic brakes for bending it in to shape.  Using halyard line, just as the young Kjaerholm did on his final graduation project, our reproduction of this uniquely iconic chair is unlike any other reproduction on the market.

You can come see this chair and the level of craftsmanship we put in to every inch at our BellinghamChicago or Dallas showrooms!
