For many years, The PK8 Chair existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjaerholm, the wife of Poul Kjaerholm. The PK8 was put into production in close collaboration with Hanne Kjaerholm and introduced to the public in connection with the 2007 exhibition about Poul Kjaerholm, The furniture architect, at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen.
Danish Design Store offers all variations of the PK8 Chair. It is available with front upholstery in black or white moulded plastic in a limited range of fabrics or leathers. The base is made of anodized, satin brushed aluminium and the shell of PC/ABS plastic.
