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.

Bas van Pelt (Netherlands, 1931-95)

EMS, My Home. 1930s

Rare early Bas Van Pelt design double-sided desk with two chairs

Bas van Pelt began his shop ‘My Home’ in The Hague, Netherlands in 1931 and within a short period the company opened showrooms in other cities such as Maastricht and Amsterdam. The domestic interior design firm focused on producing high-quality modern interior furniture. Eventually right up until into the 1990s Bas van Pelt furniture and fabrics were also sold throughout The Netherlands and beyond by well-known modernist suppliers and manufacturers such as Thonet, D3, LOV and Gispen.
