Poul Kjaerholm for E. Kold Christensen, set of 'PK17' nesting tables, perspex acrylic, steel, Denmark, 1957

These modernist Danish nesting tables by Poul Kjaerholm were manufactured in Denmark by E. Kold Christensen. They feature an open chrome frame with a white acrylic slick top. Due to the simple use of color and the openness of the frame the set has a modern, refined aesthetic. The tables are typical modernist as they are geometric and form a balanced clean and Minimalist whole. The PK17 is part of the MoMA's permanent collection.

Poul Kjærholm (1929-1980) was a Danish architect and furniture designer whose approach to architecture was that of a craftsman. He developed two principles in his work: the sculptural and the architectural. He designed by intuition, his pieces resemble references to Egyptian and Greek work but also to the pioneers of the twentieth century such as Bauhaus. Kjærholm designs are modest in means but rich in expression.
