Clarus | Poul Kjærholm’s very first dining chair – the light, elegant and comfortable PK1 – was designed in 1955 and has been manufactured by Carl Hansen & Søn since 2017. Originally, the chair was weaved in peddig pipe but is now relaunched with a new and durable FSC-certified paper cord weave; a natural and durable material that achieves a beautiful patina over time. The PK1 Chair marked the beginning of an impressive career, serving as an outstanding example of the designer’s unique ability to lend vitality to steel. Kjærholm had a penchant for working with steel, preferably in combination with organic materials, to add softness and comfort to a tightly reduced design. This new variant combines Kjærholm’s great knowledge of steel and Carl Hansen & Søn’s more than a 70-year’s expertise with woven paper cord.
