In 1963, Poul Kjaerholm designed the Fredericia Town Hall and created PK-600, a large, 250kg black marble bowl. This form, part sculpture, part functional object, was welcomed with remarkable public success. In response, Kjaeholm designed its offspring, the PK-Bowl, so that everybody could enjoy it as a part of theirown household. Made of granite, the PK-Bowl is a stark contrast between square and round as well as the smooth inside and rough outside symbolizes the contrast between the feminine and masculine.
Produced in limited quantities of only 300 a year, each bowl is numbered on its base. Be it used as a bowl, ashtray or decoration, it is testament to Kjaerholm’s philosophy of “making form a part of function” and offering a timeless work of art to be appreciated by generations to come.
The PK-Bowl is 15 x 15 x 7 cm.
