Identical with Original

I have bought both the blue cashmere egg chair and the swan chair (same color) for our daughters new flat. The design is awesome, you have to arrange delivery yourself as they aren't allow to ship outside Ireland. Sounds as a pain but its super easy and cost 60€ for delivery to Frederiksberg with DSV, took two days.

Great Service, they keep their promise

The quality is amazing, it was ready after 6 weeks (not 6 months!). Really happy with the chair.

Helpfull staff!

I was unsecure about choosing Italian leather or go for the Danish cashmere, but got help on their live chat, they really know about their details. 122 Design is truly a heaven if you love cheap high quality stylish furnitures for your home.

Really Good Quality

I ordered my Egg Chair with Black Italian leather last month and have now received it. I'm really please with the seams and the attention to the details. The service was good, there was a nice catalog with the package and how best practice after care. Worth to sign up for their newsletters, they send out good inspiration emails.

Great service!

Had to change the colour after, and that was super easy. I spoke to David on the LiveChat and they quickly changed it. Really good aftercare, appreciate it was easy to get in touch with them and they solved my issue quickly, even on a Sunday. Now I have 4 lovely white chairs in my living room, they look beautiful and just in time for Christmas!

Really good quality, friendly livechat!

Always wanted the y chair for our new kitchen. Great quality (this was actually why I bought from 122 Design) and good support after my order. Smart with the livechat, I used that before I finally made up my mind. I think a lot of online furniture store could learn something from 122 Design!

Virkelig flot!

Elsie on Jul 09, 2016

People who pay the original price, must feel stupid. There is no difference, and the quality is really amazing at 122 Design

Perfect

Really good quality

High quality

Eleanor on Jun 09, 2016

But pleasantly purprised with the quality and it looks really nice in our house. I had to arrange my own delivery, it might sounds complicated and expensive but its not. When the product is about to be ready, they contact you. It took me 5 min and cost 39 euro for a lounge chair.

Amazing

Great support!

Dorothy on May 09, 2016

I just want to make everyone aware, that the detailed quality of this lamp is just amazing. There is no difference in this one or what you can buy in e.g. Louis Poulsen, except you are saving a LOT of money. Ohh well, 122 Design is also open in the weekends. 6 weeks from ordered to ready!

Same as original, just cheaper

Just a little tips

Debra on Feb 10, 2016

My favorite chair. Bought two with my husband for their hunting house. We went for Walnut (a bit more expensive) but really nice quality.

Flot kvalitet

Deborah on Feb 09, 2016

Excellent Service and most importantly: perfect furniture. A bit of wait though.

Just a little tips

Dawn on Jan 09, 2016

I have ordered different designs inspired by the designer Eames and I gotta say there are all individually great, there is a nice finish to each of the designs and it is really easy to assemble. I thought first that all of them would be delivered assembled but the DSW and DAW comes in two part the feet and seat separate, but to be honest there is nothing as simple as those to build. Regarding the service, not a lot of follow up on order maybe this is something 122 Design could improve but apart from that I am just happy!

The Danish designer Poul Kjærholm designed his PK22 chair for E. Kold Christensen in 1956. As one of his first creations, the PK22 is based on Kjærholm’s graduation project from the School of Applied Arts in Copenhagen which he finished in 1952. Simple and elegant design of the chare ensured its great popularity both in Denmark and internationally where it received great critical acclaim and won numerous awards, including the prestigious Grand Prix prize at the Milan Triennale in 1957.

Choose between Several Different Colours

    Poul Kjærholm’s PK22 can be obtained in several variants, so you can choose the model that is the best fit for your home or office. The frame of the chair is made in a satin brushed stainless steel, while the available materials include:

    • Suede
    • Certain leather variants
    • Canvas
    • Wicker

    Poul Kjærholm original PK22 design incorporated a tightened double canvas covering and was also produced in different leather variants. The colours varied between:

    • Black/brown
    • Red
    • Indian red
    • Off-white
    • Cognac
    • Light-tan
    • Walnut

    Today it is also possible to obtain the chair in the different leather types and canvas in all these colours, as well as a model in wicker.

    In recent years, Fritz Hansen, the company in charge of the manufacturing of the chair since 1982, introduced additional colours for the canvas models, including red, green and black. The frame of the chair has also changed throughout the years, with the original design of chromed steel being replaced with satin brushed steel in 2000. 

    Price of the PK22 Chair

    A new original chair from Fritz Hansen cost around 22.000kr. (£2.660 / $3.385) for the model in wicker, while one in black leather cost around 28.000kr. (£3310 / $4210).

    If you plan on buying a second-hand model, you can certainly save some money, compared to purchasing the original, but it’s very difficult to give an estimation of the second-hand model price, as the average price can fluctuate due to multiple factors, including the number of available Poul Kjærholm’s chairs at the moment. 

    Second-Hand PK22

    Another alternative to buying an original is to get a replica of the PK22 designer chair. You can legally do this in Ireland, where it’s legal for companies to sell copies of designer chairs 25 years after the original release – shorter period of time than in most of Europe, which means that some of the most iconic examples of Danish Modern design are available at a price that is a fraction of the original cost.

    However, if you do decide to buy a second-hand original, you can check the websites like Lauritz, Trendsales or eBay where you can bid on designer furniture. However, there are several considerations when doing this – first, you’ll have to keep an eye on the bids and make sure that you do not lose the chair in the last seconds of the auction. Second, as with most second-hand purchases, you should carefully check the chair for defects and imperfections like:

    • If it is a leather model, has the leather started cracking?
    • On a wicker model, has the braiding started unravelling or has it become loose?
    • Does the surface of the frame still look nice?
    • Does the chair still feel robust to sit in, or are there some loose elements, especially in the frame?

    Poul Kjærholm's Designer Chairs

    Poul Kjærholm was born on 8th of January 1929 in Øster Vrå, Denmark. Starting his career as a carpenter in 1948, Kjærholm later started the Design School in Copenhagen where he graduated in 1952. His graduation project was the chair PK25 which he continued to work on in the following years, refining the design and making the chair more comfortable. In 1956, the final design was completed and the result was PK22, probably his most popular and successful chair, both in Denmark and internationally. This lounge chair beautifully expresses Poul Kjærholm’s minimalistic approach to design and his fondness for steel and leather as basic materials. With roots in Danish Modern, his designs also incorporate the core ideas of international functionalism, combining the aesthetic, yet minimalistic design with high functional value.

    Inspiration and Influences

    The PK22’s frame has fewer elements than that of PK25 while at the same time providing better support and greater comfort. When designing the chair, Poul Kjærholm was inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona chair from 1929. But, PK22 is far more simple and discreet and, one can say, more in line with the spirit of the Scandinavian style and the tradition of Danish furniture design.
