Whether used as two unique sculptures, salt and pepper bowls or simple decoration, PK-Mini is primarily a timeless work of art whose functionality creates a niche for itself. It is available in gift boxes of one or two.
The daily cleaning can be done with a duster or a hard wringed cloth. Since the marble is a nature stone, it is important to treat it correctly. One can saturate the stone to protect it against the penetration of grease, by applying beeswax on the stone with a cloth. Since the marble is also a limestone one cannot use acidiferous detergents.
In 1963, Poul Kjærholm combined sculpture and function with his PK-600, a large 250 kg black marble bowl. In response to its remarkable success, he drew its offspring, PK-Bowl, in granite, making it smaller, lighter, and affordable for design lovers to enjoy in their homes. PK-Mini embraces contrasts between black and white; between the gracefully curved veins and the solid stone. It highlights the contrast between the soft shaped interior and the raw, rugged exterior.
PK-Mini consists of two sculptural bowls made of black Nero Marquina Marble and white Volakas Marble. The two bowls are related to the PK-600, PK-Bowl and PK-Marble, which Poul Kjærholm made in 1963. As their predecessors, PK-Mini embraces contrasts between black and white; between the gracefully curved veins and the solid stone. It highlights the contrast between the soft shaped interior and the raw, rugged exterior.
The shape of PK-Mini highlights these distinct qualities of the marble. The polished rounded bowl gently reflects incoming light. The organic pattern created by the veins makes an interesting interplay with the clean lines of the design. Kjærholm’s timeless design is a remarkable juxtaposition of opposites that finds a new dimension in PK-Mini.
