PK1 | CHAIR
Designed by Poul Kjærholm
The light, elegant and comfortable PK1 – Poul Kjærholm’s very first dining chair – was designed in 1955 and marked the beginning of an impressive career.
Lightness and form, beautifully captured
The PK1 chair, designed by Poul Kjærholm, perfectly captures his hallmarks of function and clarity. Kjærholm became known as one of the most uncompromising furniture designers of his generation, as well as one of the finest representatives of modernism.
The PK1 also serves as an outstanding example of Kjærholm’s unique ability to realize the full potential of his chosen materials, and demonstrates his search for authenticity and perfection in form, function, and execution.
A complex design with a straightforward, minimalist expression, the PK1 dining chair is brought to life through expert craftsmanship, including the precise weaving of either 55 meters of flag halyard or beautifully crafted woven wicker. The pairing of the organic weaving material with a dynamic steel frame results in exceptional comfort and visual lightness, making this stackable chair perfect for both classic and modern interiors.

Maintenance ｜ 养护
Keep the frame clean and dry. They may be permanently stained if water/fat/cleaning products are not removed relatively quickly. Clean the surface with a lint-free cleaning cloth added warm water and a mild detergent.（Do not use chlorine/abrasive cleaners as this may damage the surface. ）
Grease stains：Use an alcohol cleaner or glass cleaner to remove grease stains. Then follow the guide for regular maintenance.
Lime stains：Clean the surface with warm water and a mild detergent. A little elbow grease goes a long way to remove the stains but avoid using cloths or sponges that may scratch the surface. Wipe down the surface and soak it in vinegar/cover it with a vinegar-soaked piece of paper towel for 30-60 minutes. Remove the vinegar residue with lukewarm tap water.
For the seat and back, you can wipe it using a cloth tightly wrung out with a neutral colorless soap solution. However, it is advisable not to do this too often, as it can wear the paper cord unnecessarily. If necessary, use a vacuum at low power to vacuum.
