Please join us for this seminar that includes presentations and videos on the work of Poul Kjærholm and a number of his most significant designs will be on display. The IDCEC-approved course is about 60 minutes long. Annie McKenna will be representing Fritz Hansen and the work of Poul Kjærholm.
Poul Kjærholm (1929 – 1980) 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. After a series of experiments with molded materials, Kjærholm developed his mature method: treating steel construction with the delicacy and precision of traditional woodworking techniques. His work is included in the permanent collections of museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where his furniture is also used throughout the galleries and other public areas.
Join Inform and Seattle IIDA City Center to learn more about Kjærholm’s work, processes and impact on modern design. Light bites and refreshments will be provided.
