Poul Kjærholm PK9 Tulip Chairfor Fritz Hansen The PK9™ is a side chair also known as the “Tulip chair” due to its unique shape. The shape characterized by the three pieces of satin-brushed stainless steel that act as a column, a set of legs and carriers of the leather seating element. The story of the design is about Poul Kjærholm’s uncompromising quest for the perfect shape.
The inspiration for the shape of the shell comes from the imprint of his wife’s, Hanne Kjærholm, behind in the sand on the beach. Later, during the design process, Hanne Kjærholm sat in boxes of clay to find the most optimal and comfortable solution. PK9 matches the PK54™ table perfectly. The PK9 chair is fully upholstered in a limited selection of leather, the base is made of satin brushed stainless steel.
