As a designer, Poul Kjaerholm often adapted historical furniture to create his own uniquely modern designs. As such, the sleek and versatile Fritz Hansen PK91 Folding Stool was inspired by an ancient Egyptian folding stool, circa 1500 BC. The seat is leather or canvas, which stretches taut when the stainless steel frame is opened.
Established in 1872 in Copenhagen, Fritz Hansen has since come to epitomize the mid-century Danish Modern aesthetic. Blending craftsmanship with innovation, Fritz Hansen is particularly well-noted for their laminated and molded wood veneer furniture. Pieces from Vico Magistretti, Piero Lissoni and, especially, Arne Jacobsen have become icons of modern furniture design.
The PK91 Folding Stool is available with the following:

- Fritz Hansen is dedicated to preserving the legacy of their original furniture designs. To this end, all authentic Fritz Hansen products come with a label that has a unique ID number, the name of the designer, the year of manufacture and origin. A personally signed certificate is also included, showing that the piece has gone through Fritz Hansen's premium quality check.
