Denmark, 1929 – 1980
This is for one of the most iconic designs by Poul Kjaerholm, this coffee table model PK61 designed for E Kold Christensen, Denmark 1956. This original old EKC table with solid flat steel matt chrome plated frame has the EKC Denmark logo impressed on one leg and a fantastic green marble (greenland marble?) top which is a very nice top with this frame. The frame is in very good vintage condition with minimal wear due to age and usage. The top is in nice original condition with only minimal surface wear, there are 2 natural cracks in the marble. Since marble is a really brittle stone kind this happens really often especially with this type of marble. The crack does not go compltely through and doesnt effect any of the stability.
This low table created to complement the PK22 lounge chair was one of his most elementary designs, but it had the power of a menifesto. The table was constructed 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 amtt surface of the steel legs and reinforced the sensation of a single, self-contained object. The legs extended above the horizontal bars, flush ith the surface of the table, to hold the top in position. The pinwheel-like structure of the base created a square that allowed Kjaerholm tof asten each of the four elements at two points, increasing the rigidity of the frame. The result was an object that was visually and tructurally stable.
