Poul Kjærholm (Denmark, 1929-1980)

PK9 Chairs – E. Kold Christensen, Denmark

chrome steel; leather

Kjærholm designed the ultimate functionalist furniture that was praised for its understated elegance and clean lines.

Kjærholm had a particular interest in various construction materials; especially steel, which he considered a natural material. In 1955, Kjærholm started collaborating with manufacturer E. Kold Christensen, which lasted until his death in 1980.

The PK9 series consist of splayed-legged bases on which a shaped seat is fully upholstered in black leather.

These are early edition chairs marked with the KC monogram and stamped Denmark.

PK31 Chairs – E. Kold Christensen

The PK31 series rest on a matt chromium-plated spring steel base. The down-filled cushions are covered in your choice of leathers.

Both chairs are marked with the KC monogram and are in very good condition. The cushions are replacements professionally made in the 1980s.

Poul Kjærholm (Denmark 1929-1980)

PK55 Ash wood and brushed steel dining table

1970s production. (Unmarked)

The use of steel and Allen bolts to connect the frames allowed Kjaerholm to avoid the, sometimes, imprecise process of welding. It also fulfilled his desire to show how the frames were connected, thus providing a clear legibility to his designs, and led him towards creating his first work desk and compatible chair – the PK 55 and PK 11, which appeared in 1957.

The simple looking build of the PK55 table belies a much more interesting design than is apparent at first glance. The steel base frame is actually composed of four lengths of flat steel, intersecting at each corner, with the short end leg propping up the longer, width-spanning leg. Each leg element is held together yet simultaneously pushed slightly apart with Allen bolts to give the base frame an even lighter profile and also to reveal the four separate planes.

This work table features an ash table top and satin brushed steel frame.

 W.(Wim) Den Boon (Netherlands, 1912-1968)

Pair of triangular side tables, 1950s

chromed steel and formica board.

The Dutch architect Wim Den Boon alongside Hein Stolle and Pierre Kleykamp formed the ‘Group&’ in the period shortly after WWII as part of the Dutch ‘Goed Wonen’ (Good living) movement. They focused on designing purist interior furniture and design that fitted in seamlessly with the functionalist designs of the thirties.

By the 1950s Den Boon broke with ‘Group &’ and established himself as an independent furniture designer in The Hague. From that time and throughout the 60s he was responsible for many interiors and renovation projects, particularly in The Hague. These two tables (one shown) were designed as part of the interiors of one of those projects – The tables can be seen within the complete interior of a house in the images of Peter Voge’s biography of Den Boon.

As seen, the design of these tables was ahead of its time – There are visible influences of Rietveld and De Stijl or even the Scandinavian designs of Kjaerholm. At his best Den Boon designed some of the most futuristic interiors during the 1950s. His furniture is rare to find and most of it can only be experienced through photographic documentation.
