PK8 Chair

Designed by:  Poul Kjærholm
Manufactured by:  Fritz Hansen

For many years, The PK8 existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjærholm, the wife of Poul Kjærholm.  It was put into production and introduced to the public in connection with the 2007 exhibition “the furniture architect”, at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen.  The special form of the chair, with its composition of sinuous curves resembles Kjærholm’s cantilevered chair from 1953, but the three legs give the chair an outstanding expression of its own.  The chair is well suited as a dining chair when combined with the PK58 table.  This product is available with front upholstery in a limited range of leathers.  The back of the PK8 is crafted in molded plastic with a black, white, red, or gray finish.  The base is made in a satin brushed aluminum finish combined with a PC/ABS plastic shell. Price includes shipping to the USA.  Manufactured by Fritz Hansen.

Designed in 1978.
