The PK25™ chair was designed by Poul Kjærholm for his graduation project at the School of Arts and Crafts in 1952. Also known as the Element chair, the PK25 is a striking example of Poul Kjærholm's talent for transforming common industrial materials into striking works of art.
Kjærholm was determined to design the chair with a single piece of each material, which gave rise to his main trademark: the continuous steel frame that bends seamlessly as the form is formed.

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 and articulated form, all in relief with a style that is still famous around the world.
From modest beginnings as a cabinetmaker apprentice at the Gronbech workshop in 1948, Kjaerholm continued to forge his ideology at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen. Far from shunning the majority of his Scandinavian counterparts, the Dane chose steel as the main material rather than wood. "The potential of steel is not the only thing that interests me, the refraction of light on its surface is an important part of my artistic work. "
Awarded the prestigious Lunning Prize in 1958 and the Trennali Grand Prix in Milan in 1960, Kjaerholm's drawings continue to be featured in the permanent collections of the New York Museum of Modern Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. in many other museums across Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Germany.
