The PK24™ Chaise Longue, one of the most distinguished pieces in Fritz Hansen's Poul Kjærholm collection, seamlessly blends historical influence with modern materials and methods. Drawing inspiration from the Rococo period and the French chaise longue, Kjærholm reimagined the concept using steel, rendering a support system for a smoothly flowing form. Known also as the 'Hammock Chair', the PK24™ puts forward a unique design principle — suspending the body between two points. This structural design underscores the practical function of the chair, offering unparalleled comfort while maintaining a sculptural, fluid aesthetic.
The chair’s flowing form, achieved through Kjærholm's ingenious use of steel, offers a seamless blend of strength and elegance. It captures the essence of modern design while hinting at historical periods, creating a timeless piece that appeals to a wide range of aesthetics. For architects and design professionals, the PK24™ Chaise Longue is not just a chair; it is an embodiment of innovative design that draws from the past while shaping the future. Whether placed in a minimalist workspace or a classical interior, the PK24™ brings both style and function, making a bold statement about the appreciation of enduring design.
