All designs, whether for an entire home or a single piece of furniture, start as a line on the page. It takes a feat of engineering to transport them into the material realm. 

The late Poul Kjærholm was a master of the exercise: The design of his PK4 lounge chair, made from seven pieces of tubular steel and one length of halyard, encapsulates the Danish designer’s uncanny ability to distill technically complex ideas into one seemingly simple, visually arresting object. 

In collaboration with Fritz Hansen, which has recently relaunched the PK4 in both satin-brushed and black powder-coated stainless steel, Kinfolk’s creative team traces how the lines of Kjærholm’s design create a functional piece of furniture that is equal parts architecture and art.
