The daybed is a clear illustration of Poul Kjærholm’s method of refining historical models and distilling them down to the essence and demonstrating his superior ability to balance construction and choice of materials. The inspiration for the daybed came from Bauhaus, which in turn were inspired by ancient Roman couches. PK80 is upholstered in leather with a brushed stainless steel frame.The PK80™ daybed comes with a seat in a limited range of leather types or natural canvas. It rests on a painted plywood bedplate, and the frame is made of satin brushed stainless steel.

Poul Kjærholm was a trained carpenter and continued his studies at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts. He had a particular interest in different construction materials; especially steel which he considered a natural material with the same artistic fineness as other natural materials. Poul Kjærholm was employed at Fritz Hansen for about a year, where he designed a number of noteworthy chair prototypes.
