Poul Kjærholm

For a limited time, take home a piece of design history at a special price in uncolored aniline leather - a choice that honors the honest simplicity of Kjærholm's design.

Treated ecologically, aniline leather is tanned with the bark of the tara tree. It is a leather of the highest quality, destined to acquire a superb patina. Very light when new, it will become more golden over time, with rich, natural nuances whose color will intensify to achieve a natural beauty.

Poul Kjærholm

Acclaimed for his distinctive style of furniture design, Poul Kjaerholm was born in Øster Vrå, Denmark in 1929. His pieces are considered to contain a minimalist, articulated form, all in relief with a style that is still celebrated the world over.

 

From humble beginnings as a cabinetmaker's apprentice at the Gronbech workshop in 1948, Kjaerholm went on to forge his ideology at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen. Far from shying away from the majority of his Scandinavian counterparts, the Dane chose steel as his primary material rather than wood. "Steel's potential is not the only thing I'm interested in; the refraction of light on its surface is an important part of my artistic work.

 

Awarded the prestigious Lunning Prize in 1958 and the Grand Prix du Trennali in Milan in 1960, Kjaerholm's drawings continue to feature in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and numerous other museums throughout Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Germany.
