DePoul Kjærholm

Poul Kjaerholm was heavily influenced by his surroundings and his designs reflect the traditional Scandinavian affinity for wood and steel to produce delicate, yet highly structural designs.

Originally training as a cabinet maker, he continued his fascination with square and rectangular shapes into his furniture design. Typically low-lying, they invite a natural impulsion to sit and recline into their minimal lines such as the Hammock chair (1965).

The shallow, squareness of his iconic chairs and sofas suspends and supports the sitter, keeping them very much at coffee-table level for an intimate and sociable feel for any space.
