Denmark, 1929 – 1980
Iconic and one of the most well known designs by Poul Kjaerholm, is this model PK61 coffee table and was manufactured in Denmark by Ejvind Kold Christensen in 1956. The fantastic slate top has a nice grain and has a deep black colour, and is in a nice and original condition with minimal surface wear which is visible on the pictures, and is one of the few original stone tops that Kold Christensen used. The frame itself also is in a very good condition with minimal wear due to age and usage throughout the years. This original table with solid flat steel and matte chrome plated frame has the EKC Denmark logo impressed on one leg.
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.
