PK - 600

Marble ashtray

Manufacturer Architectmade

(1963)
The PK-600 is a sculptural piece in luxurious black marquina marble. It was originally designed by Poul Kjærholm to stand as an oversized ashtray in the town of Fredericia in 1963. It is produced according to the original drawings by the architect and has Poul Kjærholm’s signature engraved on the bottom side.
The bowl measures 60 by 60 cm and is 30 cm tall. It weighs around 250 kg. The smooth, semi-spherical inner black marble surface reflects any incoming light in a soft, subdued way. The PK-600 can be used for its original intended purpose, but it looks just as beautiful standing on its own as an artwork.

 - Marble ashtray PK - MINI - Architectmade Marble ashtray 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.

Nero Marquina Marble is known for its soft black color accented by graceful white veins. White Volakas Marble is known for its clean white stone with light grey veining that provides a classic and timeless expression. 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.
