Concept

The PK9™ is a side chair also known as the “Tulip chair” due to its unique shape. The shape is characterized by the three pieces of satin-brushed stainless steel that act as a column, as legs and carriers of the leather seating element. The inspiration for the shape was a sand imprint of his wife’s behind on the beach. Later, during the design process, Hanne Kjærholm sat in boxes of clay to find the most optimal and comfortable solution. PK9™ is made of a inner shell in nylon. The shell is covered with leather which is glued onto the back while being loose on the front to enhance the comfort. The legs are of satin brushed stainless steel.
