Poul Kjaerholm

Poul Kjaerholm (1929-1980), born in Øster Vrå , was a Danish designer known for his Modern Functionalist furniture.  He studied at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen and after graduating in 1952, began designing furniture characterized by his minimal aesthetic. He designed dozens of chairs, long chairs, and tables that became groundbreaking for Danish furniture design, including the PK22 chair and the PK 24 long chair.  He preferred to work in steel and always combined it with wood, leather, cane, canvas, and marble. His designs are in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, among others.
