The PK9 upholstered armless office chair was designed by Poul Kjaerhol for Fritz Hansen in Denmark. A simple classic design is elevated to the next level with the rich Leather upholstery options. The base of the chair is in satin brushed stainless steel.
The PK9 is a side chair also known as the “Tulip chair” due to its unique shape. The shape characterized by the three pieces of satin-brushed stainless steel that act as a column, a set of legs and carriers of the leather seating element. The story of the design is about Poul Kjaeholm’s uncompromising quest for the perfect shape. The inspiration for the shape of the shell comes from the imprint of his wife’s, Hanne Kjaerholm, behind in the sand on the beach. Later, during the design process, Hanne Kjaerholm sat in boxes of clay to find the most optimal and comfortable solution. The PK9 chair is fully upholstered in a limited selection of leather, the base is made of satin brushed stainless steel.
