Concept

The PK25™ was designed by Poul Kjærholm in 1951, for his final graduation project at the School of Applied Arts in Copenhagen. The PK25, also known as the “Element” chair, is a fine example of the young Kjærholm’s eagerness to work with common, industrial materials. Kjærholm was deter- mined to reduce the chair to a single piece of each material, resulting in the overarching hallmark of the chair: The continuous and rather complex steel frame that is bent in a single piece without joints and connections.

The frame for PK25™ is made from a single piece of matt chromed spring steel. A long length of flag halyard wound around the seat and back of the curved steel frame forms in simplicity the chair.
The flag halyard is made from line with a nylon core. it is available in the coulours black and natural.
