Created in 1961, Poul Kjaerholm's PK9 Chair reflects the designer's quest for the perfect form. The PK9 has an individual and aesthetical design profile, combining clean lines and organic forms. The tripod base provides a distinctive look as well as a stable support for the seating shell. The fully-upholstered seat ensures comfort and elegance. The experienced Danish cabinetmaker recognized the perfect balance of materials and forms, making the PK9 Chair one of the popular classics of 20th Century Nordic furniture design.

Poul Kjaerholm (1929-1980) was a trained carpenter and continued his studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He had a particular interest in different construction materials; especially steel which he considered a natural material with the same artistic fineness as other natural materials. Poul Kjaerholm was employed at Fritz Hansen for about a year, where he designed a number of noteworthy chair prototypes. In 1955 Poul Kjaerholm initiated his collaboration with manufacturer Ejvind Kold Christensen, which lasted until Poul Kjaerholm's death in 1980. In 1982, Fritz Hansen took over the production and sales of "The Kjaerholm Collection", developed from 1951 to 1967, designs, which are logical to the minute detail with an aura of exclusivity. In 2007 Fritz Hansen added two new pieces to the Kjaerholm Collection. Pieces that were never in production before, the PK8 side chair and PK58 dining table.
