PK22 Lounge Chair

Designed by:  Poul Kjærholm
Manufactured by:  Fritz Hansen

The discrete and elegant lounge chair PK22 epitomizes the work of Poul Kjærholm and his search for the ideal type-form and industrial dimension, which was always present in his work.  The profile of the steel frame structure originates from his graduation project, the “Element” Chair (PK25), from the School of Applied Arts in Copenhagen.  On the PK22, the structure was divided into separate elements due to design improvements and for economical production.  The PK22 was an immediate commercial and critical success.  In 1957, the chair was awarded the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale, the world’s premier design fair.  The prize catapulted Kjærholm’s career and immediately he became a name on the international scene and has enjoyed this position ever since.  The PK22 is available in wicker, canvas, or fully upholstered in a limited range of leathers or suede.  The base is made of satin-brushed stainless steel.  Manufactured by Fritz Hansen.  Price includes shipping to the USA.

Designed in 1956.
