Poul Kjaerholm (Denmark, 1929-1980)

Pk101 candelabrum for Kold Christensen. 1956.

Brushed steel. Stamped ‘Denmark’. According to Michael Sheridan’s catalogue raisonne on Kjaerholm, the double-helix design of the PK101 illustrates Kjaerholm’s desire to emulate abstraction and economy of form found in the plant kingdom. The thin steel rods attached to the central tube exploit the high tensile strength of steel to reduce the rods to their minimum diameter. The rods were threaded at both ends in order to support a set of rings sized to fit the typical Danish candle commonly used at Christmas.

Together with this candelabrum we are including a set of small ball shaped candles with an extending section to fit the rings of the candelabrum – The candles are designed by Timo Sarpanava.

POA.

Arne Jacobsen (Denmark, 1902-1971)

The Danish architect and designer combined modernist principles and a Nordic love for nature with an obsession in finding the perfect proportions. His creations feature simple, elegant and functional forms.

This floor lamp was designed by Jacobsen for the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen and manufactured by Louis Poulsen during the early 1950s.

literature: Arne Jacobsen, Thau and Vindum, ppg. 80, 434, 436

The shade has some staining and the lamp some minor wear and tear.

POA.
