The PK22 easy chair from Fritz Hansen's "Poul Kjaerholm collection." Simple elegance, a typical Kjærholm design – with the combination of steel and wicker or leather - in an exclusive and minimalist design. The discrete and elegant PK22 easy chair stands as an icon for Poul Kjærholm's work. 

Poul Kjærholm had a particular interest in various construction materials; especially steel, which he considered a natural material. He was a trained carpenter who continued studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He moved on to work at Fritz Hansen, for about a year, where he designed a number of noteworthy chair prototypes. In 1955, Kjærholm started collaborating with manufacturer Ejvind Kold Christensen, which lasted until his death in 1980. In 1982, Fritz Hansen took over the production and sales of "The Kjærholm Collection," developed from 1951 to 1967, designs, which are logical to the minute detail with an aura of exclusivity. 

PK22 easy chair has a satin-brushed stainless spring steel base and available in your choice of canvas, leathers or wicker.
