For many years, The PK8™ existed only as a prototype in the home of Hanne Kjaerholm, the wife of Poul Kjaerholm.

The PK8 was put into production in close collaboration with Hanne Kjaerholm and introduced to the public in connection with the 2007 exhibition about Poul Kjaerholm, “The furniture architect”, at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, north of Copenhagen.
The special form of the chair, with its composition of sinuous curves resembles Kjaerholm’s cantilevered chair from 1953, but the three legs, which shape compliments the seating element, give the chair an outstanding expression of its own.
The chair is well suited as a dining chair together with the PK58™ table.
