Poul Kjærholm’s first chair is now presented with wicker

18-15-04-carlhansen

Poul Kjærholm was fascinated by wicker and had a great interest in hand-woven baskets.

Therefore, it was natural that Poul Kjærholm’s very first chair design – the dining table chair PK1 from 1955 – was made of steel and hand-woven wicker.

This lightweight and elegant chair is now presented by Carl Hansen & Søn in stainless steel combined with natural coloured wicker.

Wicker is the stem core of a climbing palm wine, and the long stems that grow up to 160 meters are dried and then used for furniture and baskets.

The wicker varies in colour and patronize beautifully.

This new addition to the Poul Kjærholm collection made of steel with seat and back in wicker is true to the designer’s original vision.

PK1 is also available with natural or black flag line and in an outdoor variant with stainless steel frame combined with a light brown or black weather-resistant flag line. Both the indoor and the outdoor variants can be stacked with up to 5 chairs.
