Canvas PK22 by Poul Kjaerholm for Kold Christensen
Lounge chair, model no. PK22 by Poul Kjaerholm for Ejvind Kold Christensen, Hellerup, Denmark. Chrome-plated spring steel EKC frame with a New Old Stock EKC canvas cover. The chair won the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale in 1957, then the most important furniture fair in the world. Marked. This original canvas cover was bought by the first owner as a spare part in 1963 (at Matser Furniture in Wageningen). The cover has always been preserved and is now used as a replacement for the old one. This canvas is rougher and more natural than the current canvas. At the bottomside (see last picture), there is a light water stain but the cover is unused and perfect. Dimension: height 28.0 in. (71 cm), width 24.8 in. (63 cm), depth 26.3 in. (67 cm), seat height 13.8 inches (35 cm). Literature: Poul Kjaerholm, Arkitektens Forlag 1999, ISBN: 8774072064, p. 84.
