Designed By
Over the years Bodil Kjær has designed a number of furniture pieces or as she prefers to call them architectural elements. Her aim was never to create sculptural statements but rather to find functional, economic, and aesthetic solutions. Kjær was born in 1932 and grew up on her family’s ancestral farm near Horsens, Denmark, where she learned to appreciate quality and aesthetics. After school, she went to England to study architecture, but returned to Denmark a year later. She enrolled at the Frederiksberg Technical College and the School of Interior Design, where she learned to create spaces from experts such as Finn Juhl and Jørgen Ditzel.
