Poul Kjærholm – Early Works
Steel’s constructive potential is not the only thing that interests me; the refraction of light on its surface is an important part of my artistic work. I consider steel a material with the same artistic merit as wood and leather
Kjærholm’s design is characterized by its understated elegance, clean lines and remarkable attention to detail – modest in means, but rich in expression. Although he always considered functionality an absolute requirement this was always done with an unwillingness to compromise as an artist.
Kjærholm’s work is represented in numerous museums around the world, most notably in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and at the V&A Museum in London.
