The PK54™ table is available with a tabletop in marble or granite.
The square base is made of satin brushed stainless steel. The circular table top has an optional expansion ring consisting of 6 sections including a storage rack, both made of natural, untreated solid maple.
The PK54™ dining table is a study in contrasting materials and forms. Circle meets square and the pure expression leaves a monumental impression that makes the table the natural focal point in any room no matter where the table is placed.
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. In 1955 Poul Kjærholm initiated his collaboration with manufacturer Ejvind Kold Christensen, which lasted until Poul Kjærholm's death in 1980. In 1982, Fritz Hansen took over the production and sales of "The Kjærholm Collection", developed from 1951 to 1967, designs, which are logical to the minute detail with an aura of exclusivity. In 2007 Fritz Hansen added two new pieces to the Kjærholm Collection. Pieces that were never in production before, the PK8™ side chair and PK58™ dining table.
