The PK1 is the first chair designed by Poul Kjærholm in 1955 and marks the beginning of his impressive career in the field of furniture design. Its dynamic shape – a combination of a light steel structure and a braided flag halyard – its practicality and its comfort make this chair a perennial classic, edited by Carl Hansen & Søn.
Poul Kjærholm was a trained carpenter and he continued his studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He was particularly interested in various construction materials, particularly steel, which he considered a natural material with the same artistic finesse as other natural materials.
