Architectmade combines former designs for new Poul Kjærholm piece
Danish design company Architectmade has combined elements from two previous Poul Kjaerholm pieces for its sculptural PK-Marble bowl.
Made from white-veined Nero Marquina marble, the piece features a scoop-shaped, polished centre, surrounded by four raw, unpolished sides.
It combines elements of Kjærholm's PK-600, a large marble bowl, with the PK-Bowl – a smaller, lighter granite version of the first, intended for people's homes.
The company has described the bowl as "a marriage of feminine and masculine style" and plans to make only 300 a year, each of which will have a numbered and stamped base.
"Its smooth and rounded inner black marble surface softly reflects incoming light, adding contrasts to the raw and unpolished exterior," said Architectmade, which stocks products by architects including Hans Bølling and Peter Karpf.
The design is the latest in a wave of furniture and lighting reissues, and was created in partnership with the Danish designer's daughter Krestine Kjærholm.
Kjærholm died in 1980 at the age of 51, although his work is still in production and several pieces are included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
The designer has also been the subject of several recent reissues, with Republic of Fritz Hansen relaunching a lounge and coffee table to celebrate their 60th anniversary, and Carl Hansen & Son rereleasing a set of tables that date back to the 1950s.
Mid-century furniture designs seem to be enjoying an extended moment in the spotlight, with several brands launching updated versions or reissuing pieces from the archive.
Joe Colombo's Tube Chair was rereleased by Italian furniture brand Cappellini earlier in the year, and Danish lighting manufacturer Louis Poulesen produced an updated mini version of Verner Panton's Panthella lamp.
