The low PK61 coffee table was also created by Kjærholm in 1956 to complement the PK22 easy chair. The easy chair was one of his most elementary designs and it had the power of a manifesto. The distillation of the structure to a set of identical elements, governed by geometry and the structural properties of the materials illustrated Kjærholm’s evolution from industrial designer to furniture architect.
 
The 60 year anniversary PK61 coffee table tabletop comes in Petra marble - a durable and beautiful surface with an exquisite high-end look and feel to it.

PK61 coffee table – 60 year anniversary edition

The coffee table PK61™ is almost as elementary and minimalistic as it gets from the hand of Poul Kjærholm. Despite the extreme distillation of the structure into a set of identical elements, the square and aesthetic design has the power of a manifesto and shows Kjærholm’s development from industrial designer to furniture architect. The four base elements are joined with machine screws that lend the table part of its unique look. The removable tabletop demonstrates Kjærholm’s recurring principle of using gravity to keep the elements in place. The PK61 tabletop is available in slate, granite, light steel-rolled marble or glass. The base is satin-brushed stainless steel.
 
In 2007, the PK61A came into production, aside from the fact that this table doesn't come with a slate tabletop the PK61a has the exact same structure as the PK61. The measurements indicate the only difference between the two.
