Poul Kjærholm Granite PK-Bowl for Architectmade
A refined Danish sculpture in granite.
Poul Kjærholm is one of Denmark's greatest architect designers. He is a purist, known for his modern, functionalist furniture which is highly praised for its understated elegance and clean lines. His uncompromising goal of "making form a part of function" helps peel away the superfluous, creating a refined, timeless and utilitarian objects.
In 1963, Kjærholm designed the Fredericia Town Hall and created PK-600, a large, 250kg black marble bowl. This form, part sculpture, part functional object, was welcomed with remarkable public success. In response, Kjærholm designed its offspring, the PK-Bowl, so that everybody could enjoy it as a part of their own household.
Made of granite, the PK-Bowl is a stark contrast between square and round as well as the smooth inside and rough outside symbolizes the contrast between the feminine and masculine.
