THE STORY BEHIND THE PK33 STOOL
Designed in 1959 as part of Kjaerholm's lifelong obsession with experimenting with shape and material, the PK33 was originally intended to act as a footstool for the PK22 Chair, mirroring the material but contrasting the form. However, as he warmed to the early drawings, he decided to lengthen the sleek steel legs to allow the PK33 to stabnd as a chair in its own right. It was this adaptability and flare that made Poul Kjaerholm one of the most famous furniture designers fo steh entire 20th century.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Unlike his Scandinavian contemporaries who worked primarily with wood, Poul Kjærholm’s passion was steel. He liked to combine the cool beauty of the metal with other materials such as wood, leather, cane or marble. “Steel’s constructive potential is not the only thing that interests me; the refraction of light on its surface is an important part of my artistic work. I consider steel a material with the same artistic merit as wood and leather,” he commented.
"And we should try to keep our designs as simple as possible."
