Wonderfully light molded Aluminium Chair. Re-edition from 2010. The original design is from 1953. Furniture designer Poul Kjaerholm is one of the most important exponents of the legendary Danish design. Unlike other Danish designers such as Jacobsen and Wegner he preferred 20s and 30s drafts. He softens classical modernisms strict functionalism with lighter forms. Steel is considered a natural material to him, having the same artistic beauty as wood. This fondness and sense for steel with fellow Danish Fabricius / Kastholm.
