An iconic and one of the most well-known designs by furniture architect Poul Kjaerholm, is this model PK61 coffee table which was manufactured by Ejvind Kold Christensen in Denmark, 1956. The minimalistic matt chrome plated steel frame supports the fantastic original slate top which has a nice grain and has a deep dark grey/brown colour where the basalt was known for. The top is in a nice and fully original condition with minimal surface wear, which is visible on the pictures. These basalt tops are one of the few original stone tops that Kold Christensen used for these tables. The frame itself also is in a very good condition with minimal wear due to age and usage over the years. This original table with solid flat steel and matte chrome plated frame has the EKC Denmark logo impressed on one leg. A table that suits every modern home or interior due to its neutral but remarkable materials combination.


This low table was created to complement the PK22 lounge chair, which was one of his most elementary designs, and had the power of a manifesto ever since. The table was constructed out of four welded steel elements joined with machine screws and topped with plates of stone or glass. Both types of tops were honed to create a non-reflective finish that complemented the surface of the steel frame, and reinforced the sensation of a single, self-contained object. The pinwheel-like structure of the base created a square that allowed Kjaerholm to fasten each of the four elements at two points, increasing the firmness of the frame. The result is an iconic design classic and must have, that is visually and structurally stable.
