Poul Kjaerholm PK61 table in greenland marble EKC Denmark 1956





Presenting an iconic masterpiece by the renowned furniture architect Poul Kjaerholm, the model PK61 coffee table, manufactured by Ejvind Kold Christensen in Denmark, 1956. This design is celebrated for its minimalistic elegance, featuring a matte chrome-plated steel frame that supports a rare and exquisite Greenland marble top with beautiful grain patterns. The marble top, one of only five original stone tops used by Kold Christensen for these tables, remains in superb, fully original condition with minimal surface wear, adding to its unique character. The steel frame, known for its durability and sleek aesthetic, is in very good vintage condition, displaying only minor wear consistent with its age. The frame also proudly bears the EKC Denmark logo impressed on one leg, a mark of its authenticity and heritage.


Designed to complement Kjaerholm’s PK22 lounge chair, the PK61 coffee table was conceived as a manifesto of his design philosophy. The table’s structure consists of four welded steel elements joined with machine screws, creating a pinwheel-like base that forms a sturdy, visually striking square. The non-reflective finish of both the stone top and the steel frame enhances the table’s cohesive, self-contained look. This timeless piece is a perfect blend of form and function, making it a versatile addition to any modern home or interior. The PK61 coffee table is not just a piece of furniture; it is a testament to Kjaerholm’s visionary design, offering both visual appeal and structural stability. An essential for collectors and design enthusiasts, this table remains a definitive classic in the world of modern furniture.

Greenland marble is a rare and exquisite natural stone known for its unique and captivating patterns. Characterized by its intricate veining and rich, varied hues, this marble is highly sought after for its beauty and exclusivity. The stone’s distinct appearance adds an elegant and luxurious touch to any piece it adorns. Due to its rarity and the complexity of quarrying in Greenland’s harsh conditions, Greenland marble is a prized material, often reserved for high-end and designer applications. Its use in furniture, like the iconic PK61 coffee table, highlights its exceptional aesthetic appeal and enduring quality.


Greenland marble originates from the region of Greenland, an autonomous territory within the Kingdom of Denmark. The marble is quarried from Greenland’s unique geological formations, which are characterized by their ancient, metamorphic rock structures. The harsh and remote conditions of Greenland make the extraction and processing of this marble particularly challenging, contributing to its rarity and exclusivity. The distinctive veining and coloration of Greenland marble result from the specific mineral compositions and geological processes unique to this region, making it a highly coveted material for luxury and designer applications.
