Poul Kjaerholm flint rolled marble and steel dining table, produced by E Kold Christensen 1964 model PK54
Early Flint rolled circular dining table designed for the architects own home. Now an icon of early Danish midcentury design.
Designer: Poul Kjærholm - Producer: E. Kold Christensen - Year of design: 1959 - Model: PK 54
An immensely impressive first edition PK 54 dining table. The minimalist design of the table is typical of Poul Kjærholm, although the use of marble and steel rare amongst mid-twentieth century Nordic designers.
The PK 54 is comprised of only two elements, two materials and two shapes.
The two elements are the table top and frame. The materials used are marble and steel. The shapes within the design are a geometric square and circle.
The juxtaposition of; only two parts, the flint-rolled Cippolino marble and satin polished steel cubus frame and the four suspended squares which make up the base and the circular top creates a satisfying and distinguished aesthetic.
The table's luxuriousness derives from the subtleties of the design described above which emphasizes the beauty of the materials used.
As well as beautiful the table is also functional. Its functionality has been increased by the treatment we have given it. The table has received a soap wash which has restored the exquisiteness of the grain and soft warmth of the marble and will protect it from spillages in the future.
Condition: The table is structurally perfect and extremely solid. The only age related wear to note are chips around the edge of the table, these have been left unrestored as it is our opinion that they do not detract from the design at all.
E. Kold Christensen's, the manufacturer's, signature is etched into the base.
