Maker: Architectmade
Designer: Poul Kjaerholm | Denmark

In 1963, Kjærholm designed the Fredericia Town Hall and created PK-600, a large, 250kg black marble bowl. This form, part sculpture, part functional object, was welcomed with remarkable public success. In response, Kjærholm designed its offspring, the PK-Bowl, so that everybody could enjoy it as a part of their own household. 

The PK-Bowl is available in either marble or granite. It is a stark contrast between square and round as well as the smooth inside and rough outside symbolizes the contrast between the feminine and masculine.
