The PK20 is a laidback and elegant easy chair by Poul Kjaerholm for Fritz Hansen. It has a high back with a matching headrest and sits on a flexible, matte-chromed spring steel base. The PK20 is true to Kjaerholm's elegant style and unmatched quality.
Poul Kjarholm 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, Kjarholm 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 Kjarholm Collection", developed from 1951 to 1967, designs, which are logical to the minute detail with an aura of exclusivity.
