PK80 Daybed Velvet Graphite Grey
DescriptionDesignerIn an ongoing attempt to unite the sublime with the absolutely necessary, Poul Kjaerholm designed the PK80 Daybed. The result is one of Kjaerholm's most sophisticated and iconic designs with a striking beauty. The daybed is a clear illustration of Poul Kjaerholm's method of refining historical models and distilling them down to the essence and demonstrating his superior ability to balance construction and choice of materials. The inspiration for the daybed came from Bauhaus, which in turn, were inspired by ancient Roman couches. The purchase of the PK80 for the galleries of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, in 2004, recognizes the daybed's natural place in furniture history.Material FeatureFrame highly polished 304 grade stainless steel with brushed finishBed solid hardwood platform Cushion high elasticity dacron wrapped foam with genuine down feather layer Medium firm cushion seat feel cushion softness customizable Fabric, Top GrainAniline Leather upholstery C.O.M available All materials are fire retardant non toxic Baby friendly DimensionsWidth 74.8 x Depth 31.5 x Height 11.8 All measurements are approximations.Poul Kjærholm 1929 1980 was a trained carpenter and continued his studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He had a particular interest in different construction materials especially steel which he considered a natural material with the same artistic fineness as other natural materials. Poul Kjærholm was employed at Fritz Hansen for about a year, where he designed a number of noteworthy chair prototypes. In 1955 Poul Kjærholm initiated his collaboration with manufacturer Ejvind Kold Christensen, which lasted until Poul Kjærholm’s death in 1980. In 1982, Fritz Hansen took over the production and sales of “The Kjærholm Collection”, developed from 1951 to 1967, designs, which are logical to the minute detail with an aura of exclusivity. In 2007 Fritz Hansen added two new pieces to the Kjærholm Collection. Pieces that were never in production before, the PK8 side chair and PK58 dining table.
