We continue to present you with inspiring and creative designers that have forever changed the world of interior design, furniture and lighting. Today, we take a look at Poul Kjaerholm, a Danish designer that created inspiring furniture pieces that easily took over the Danish and Scandinavian style.
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.
“The important thing is to express the personality of the material – not mine.”
– Poul Kjærholm
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 and detailed 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.
Poul Kjærholm created stunning and innovative creations that changed interior design, bringing a touch of uniqueness and creativity that still inspires many creators, artisans and artists.
