Here for one of the most known designs by Poul Kjaerholm, this coffee table model PK61 designed for E Kold Christensen, Denmark 1956. Poul Kjaerholm wanted to sell the production rights to Fritz Hansen at first but they didn’t want it. After a great success of manufacturing with EKC, Fritz Hansen bought the rights from them around 1980. This original old EKC table with solid flat steel matt chrome plated frame has the EKC Denmark logo impressed on one leg and has a fantastic original basalt slate top. This is one of the few original stone tops that Kold Christensen used. The frame is in very good vintage condition with minimal wear due to age and usage. The top is in nice original condition with minimal surface and wear which is visible on the pictures. The slate got a nice green patina from age and usage.

This low table created to complement the PK22 lounge chair was one of his most elementary designs, but it had the power of a menifesto. The table was constructed 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 amtt surface of the steel legs and reinforced the sensation of a single, self-contained object. The legs extended above the horizontal bars, flush ith the surface of the table, to hold the top in position. The pinwheel-like structure of the base created a square that allowed Kjaerholm tof asten each of the four elements at two points, increasing the rigidity of the frame. The result was an object that was visually and tructurally stable.
