Pk91 PK Fritz Hansen Modern Folding Stool/Ottoman by Poul Kjaerholm

The PK91 stool or ottoman was designed by Poul Kjaerholm for Fritz Hansen in Denmark. The low stool is stylish and matches up with a variety of lounge furniture offered by Fritz Hansen. The PK91 stool or ottoman can be folded away for east storage. Upholstered stool.

The PK91 folding stool designed by Poul Kjaerholm epitomizes his ongoing adaption of historical furniture categories into his oeuvre and arsenal of expressions. The source of inspiration for the PK91 is an ancient Egyptian folding stool that dates back to ca. 1500 BC. The designer’s method of refining historical furniture types has again been put into play and the result is unmistakably a Kjaerholm classic, with the stool’s minimalistic and elegant expression. The PK91 is part of the permanent collection at the Rohsska Museum in Gothenborg, in Sweden. The folding stool is available with a leather or canvas seat and the base is in satin-brushed stainless steel.
