DESCRIPTION:
A steel and wicker PK22 easy chair by Poul Kjærholm for Fritz Hansen. This is Kjærholm's most popular and enduring design. It is not only an icon of modern Danish design, but a study in simplicity. Kjærholm employed a more sophisticated structure to this chair than its predecessor, the PK25, which had a continuous steel frame. It is broken up into several elements which allows it to be more comfortable, because of the lack of the front edge in the PK25, as well as allowing it to be more economical. The use of wicker softens the feel of the chair by offsetting the coldness of the steel frame. The chair is surprisingly comfortable due to the flexibility of the wicker. A classic and elegant chair that would fit well in any modern environment.
