The PK22 chair is a true design classic that lifted Danish designer Poul Kjærholm among the greats of design. Designed in 1956, the PK22 chair was an immediate hit and won the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennial in 1957.
The shape of the PK22 chair is based on the first chair designed by Kjærholm, the PK25. Both chairs are united by an interest in ordinary industrial materials and sophisticated technology. The designer's goal was to create simple and practical furniture using as few parts as possible. All of Kjærholm’s products feature his initials, PK, in their names.
The frame of the chair is chrome-plated brushed steel. The seat is made of hard-wearing Aura leather that does not acquire a patina like Grace leather. The surface has been smoothed and corrected before dyeing. After dyeing, a protective varnish-like layer and patterning are added to the leather surface. Aura leather requires less maintenance during use.
Seat height 35 cm.
