For many years, The PK8 existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kj?rholm, the wife of Poul Kj?rholm. The PK8 was put into production in close collaboration with Hanne Kj?rholm and introduced to the public in connection with the 2007 exhibition about Poul Kj?rholm, “The furniture architect”, at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen.
The special form of the chair, with its composition of sinuous curves resembles Kj?rholm’s cantilevered chair from 1953, but the three legs, which shape compliments the seating element, give the chair an outstanding expression of its own. The chair is well suited as a dining chair together with the PK58 table. The chair has an anodised satin-brushed aluminium base, combined with a PC/ABS plastic shell in four different colour combinations, white, red, black and grey.
