Provenance Jens Nielsen & Olivia Holm-Møller Museet, Holstebro Literature Christoffer Harlang, Keld Helmer-Petersen and Krestine Kjærholm, eds., Poul Kjærholm, Copenhagen, 2001, p. 178 Thomas Bo Jensen, Exner, Copenhagen, 2012, illustrated p. 206 Michael Sheridan, The Furniture of Poul Kjærholm: Catalogue Raisonné, New York, 2007, pp. 106-7 Catalogue Essay Poul Kjærholm designed the PK 80A daybed in 1957 as a continuation of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lily Reich’s daybed design of 1930. He stripped the form of its historical references and bolster pillow, and engineered the design so that the upholstered platform would appear to float above its frame and supports. The model was put into production by E. Kold Christensen the same year of its design, and remained so until 1981. The present lot is an early example, produced between 1969 and 1971 for the Jens Nielsen & Olivia Holm-Møller Museet (at its founding named the Jens Nielsen Museum), the collection of which is now a part of the Holstebro Kunstmuseum. This iconic model was purchased for use by a number of public Danish institutions, and in 2004 The Museum of Modern Art in New York ordered a variant of the PK 80A daybed for its galleries.
