Designed by Poul Kjærholm, 1956
Poul Kjærholm's most iconic chair is without further comparison the PK22™ - a light design built by solid craftsmanship.
Designed by Poul Kjærholm
The discrete and elegant PK22™ lounge chair epitomises Poul Kjærholm’s search for the ideal form and showcases the industrial dimension always present in his work. The profile of the steel frame structure originates from the PK25™, his graduation project at the School of Applied Arts in Copenhagen. The PK22 was an immediate commercial and critical success. In 1957, the chair was awarded the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale, the world’s premier design fair. The prize catapulted Kjærholm’s career onto the international scene, where his name has enjoyed a coveted position ever since. The PK22 is available in wicker, suede, canvas or leather with a base in satin-brushed stainless steel.
