Fritz Hansen PK22 Chair in Elegance Walnut Leather. The PK22 Chair was designed by Danish designer Poul Kjaerholm in 1956.

The PK22 is a purist masterpiece that will compliment any refined interior. It is perfect for a variety of applications including residential and commercial settings.

The discrete and elegant PK22 lounge chair epitomizes the work of Poul Kjaerholm and his search for the ideal form and the perfect dimension. The goal of "making form a part of function" was expressed uncompromisingly in all of Poul Kjaerholm's work, and especially so in his PK22 design. It was a process of purification, a catharsis, in which all superfluities were peeled away and the pure utilitarian form emerged so clearly that it became a type not confined in time. Poul Kjaerholm was uncompromising in his insistence on structural clarity and technical quality. However, his personal concern for everyday use did much to popularize the austere functionalist style with which he is associated. His PK22 Chair is like an elegantly written character that gives the room in which it stands solidity and calm.
