Poul Kjærholm

Danish, 1929 - 1980
Poul Kjærholm, a Danish designer and trained carpenter, studied at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He set himself apart from his contemporaries because of his interest in utilizing construction materials besides wood. Kjærholm especially preferred to use steel in his designs, something he considered to still be a natural material. However, he always combined steel with other materials such as wood, leather, cane or marble. He collaborated with Ejvind Kold Christensen, a furniture manufacturer, for 25 years until his death in 1980. One of his most well-known designs is the PK22 Chair, which he designed in different materials like leather and cane.
