THE MODEL PK24 'HAMMOCK CHAIR', BY POUL KJÆRHOLM, for Fritz Hansen, Denmark cane, stainless steel and leather, designed 1965, 86 x 153 x 66.5 cm, constructed 2005                                                                                                                                                     The PK24 chaise longue chair, with its easy curves and organic shape, stands out as perhaps the most recognizable chair in Poul Kjærholm's work. Inspiration for this chair comes from the Rococo period and the French chaise longue - long chair - that featured the same curve and size. With this version of the PK24 easy chair Kjærholm combined two materials, steel and wicker, which he would later be recognised for in several of his designs. Known as the 'Hammock Chair', to stress that it functioned by suspending the body between two points, it has no physical connection between the main parts. Instead it is kept together by gravity and the friction between the elements.

  • Timed Online Auctions:

    In order to bid you need to register a deVeres account. When registered you can leave bids on multiple lots at any stage up until the closing time, whereby the highest bidder wins the lot. Bidding increments are approx. 10%, e.g

    €0 - €49 by €5, €50 - €199 by €10
    €200 - €499 by €20, €500 - €999 by €50
    €1,000 - €1,999 by €100, etc


    At any point you can leave a maximum bid, representing the highest price you are prepared to pay for a particular lot. Bidding only advances when there is competition from a rival bidder. In that case the system bids on your behalf, only up to the maximum if required. All bids are relayed to you be email, along with notification if you have been outbid.

    If a bid is received in the final three minutes of a timed auction the clock resets and it extends the bidding time by a further three minutes, in order to give other bidders an opportunity to respond.

    All maximum bids are confidential and not disclosed. We will endeavor to purchase the lot for you for the least price. Bids are subject to buyer’s premium of 25% (incl vat), with no additional charges.
