Poul Kjærholm, 1929 - 1980
From: Denmark - Born in Oster Vra
The work of Poul Kjærholm, a master of Danish mid-century furniture design, has often been described as 'modest in means, but rich in expression'. Unlike his Scandinavian contemporaries, who worked primarily in wood, Kjærholm revered the properties of steel and used it as his construction material of choice. His resulting works are undeniably understated and elegant, with an emphasis on clean lines and remarkable attention to detail.
