The PK24™ chaise longue chair, with its easy curves and organic shape, stands out as perhaps the most recognizable chair in Poul Kjærholm’s work. Inspiration for this chair comes from the Rococo period and the French chaise longue – long chair – that featured the same curve and size. The chair is a prime and almost extreme example of Kjærholm’s principle of designing with independent elements. Consequently, the chair has no physical connection between the main parts, which are instead kept together by gravity and the friction between the elements. Kjærholm also labelled the PK24 the “Hammock Chair” to stress that
the chair functioned by suspending the body between two points.
PK24™ is available in wicker and leather, both versions includes a leather headrest. The seat and back are curved on a steel frame covered with handwoven wicker or leather – they glide on the frame thus adjusting to the desired position. Head cushion - covered in leather and with a counter- weight of stainless steel - is adjustable, optimizing the comfort and rest. The frame is made of satin brushed stainless steel.
