PK-Mini Sculptural Bowls are two sculptural marble bowls created in 1963 by Danish Architect Poul Kjærholm. Made of Black Nero Marquina marble and White Volakas marble, the two bowls are related to the PK-600, PK-Bowl and PK-Marble family. As their predecessors, PK-Mini Bowls embrace the contrasts between black and white marble, between gracefully curved veins and solid stone, between the soft shaped interior and the raw rugged exterior. The polished rounded inside of the bowls gently reflects incoming light. On the outside the bowls are sharp edged, showing the raw material, which is the trademark of Poul Kjærholm's design. The bowls have been shaped with the precision of an architect's work. PK-Mini Sculptural Bowls are part of Architectmade's collection.

Poul Kjærholm

Poul Kjærholm (1929-1980) is a Danish designer. He began his career as a cabinetmaker's apprentice and went on to study at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen in 1952. Kjærholm’s approach is focused on structural clarity and technical quality, emphasizing its application in the design of everyday objects from nails to screws and joints. His furniture quickly became a benchmark of Danish design, as did his smaller objects (the PK bowl, for example). His work lead the way in the development of the austere yet functional style which came to define part of the 1950s aesthetic. Poul Kjaerholm’s philosophy embraced sustainability as a timeless expression, stressing the importance of using materials that age beautifully. Demanding rigorous precision in both the creation and manufacturing of his designs, Kjærholm was known to “never let a design out the door that he did not deem perfect“.
