Inhaltsangabe: The Furniture of Poul Kjaerholm: Catalogue Raisonne is the comprehensive and definitive reference work on one of the most important and profound designers of the twentieth century. Poul Kjaerholm (Denmark, 1929-80) was a furniture architect whose unique aesthetic language combined industrial materials and techniques with a craftsman's approach to details and materials. The catalogue has been authored by the American architect Michael Sheridan, an internationally recognized expert on Scandinavian architecture and design and the world's foremost authority on Kjaerholm.
This volume includes 70 entries that document, analyze and describe all of Kjaerholm's realized designs. The entries include furniture dimensions and information about materials, as well as a wealth of drawings and vintage photographs. The book features the renowned Modernist photographer Keld Helmer-Petersen's iconic photographs of Kjaerholm's work. Helmer-Petersen was Kjaeholm's creative partner for three decades and documented his furniture and exhibitions over this period. Sheridan's biographical essay traces and discusses the development of Kjaerholm's formal vision over the course of his career. Supplementary information includes a timeline of production dates, manufacturer information, notes on materials and maintenance and production stamps.
The book was compiled with the assistance of the Kjaerholm family and includes a foreword by Hanne Kjaerholm. It was designed by Takaaki Matsumoto, one of the most respected designers of art books in the world. Printed entirely in black-and-white duotone, the many archival photographs in the book are reproduced in the finest quality. Destined to become a model for the field of design, The Furniture of Poul Kjaeholm is an instant classic and an essential reference for readers interested in furniture, interior design and the history of modern architecture and design.
Über den Autor: Poul Kjaerholm began his career in 1948 as a cabinetmaker's apprentice. His distinctive style is evident as early as 1952 in his PKO Minimalist plywood series. In 1973 he became head of the Copenhagen Institute for Design. His work is in many of the most important museum collections in the world, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York
