Paul Kjærholm 是一名训练有素的木匠，并在丹麦工艺美术学院继续着他的学业。他对不同的建筑材料尤为感兴趣；特别是钢，他认为这种天然材料具有与其他天然材料相同的艺术美感。Paul Kjærholm 在 Fritz Hansen 工作了大约一年，在那里他设计了许多引人注目的椅子原型。1955 年，PoulKjærholm 与制造商 Ejvind Kold Christensen 展开了合作，一直持续到 1980 年 PoulKjærholm 去世。1982 年，Fritz Hansen 接管了他 1951 年至 1967 年期间开发的“Kjærholm 系列”的生产和销售，这些设计拥有细致入微的逻辑细节，独具氛围。2007 年，Fritz Hansen 为 Kjærholm 系列添加了两件新作品。前所未有的 PK8™ 侧椅和 PK58™ 餐桌。
The PK25™ was designed by Poul Kjærholm for his final graduation project at the School of Arts and Crafts in 1952. Also known as the ‘Element’ chair, the PK25 is a striking example of Kjærholm’s eagerness to transform common, industrial materials into striking works of art. Kjærholm was determined to reduce the chair to a single piece of each material, resulting in its overarching hallmark: the continual steel frame that bends through the form without interruption.
A piece of Poul’s furniture is like an elegant written character that gives the room in which it stands solidity and calm. Poul Kjaerholm entered the scene at a time when Danish furniture has reached a zenith, both at home and abroad, designed and shaped by inspired architects and cabinetmakers. Poul’s furniture found a natural place for itself on the same high level, but he broadened furniture design with a completely new view of furniture, and that was something.
