In 1959, Danish architect Bodil Kjær launched her Indoor-Outdoor Series, which included the supremely comfortable BK12 lounge sofa. Crafted from solid teak with a slatted seat and back, the sofa displays the same geometric sensibility that underpins the rest of this beautiful collection.
This quality is further enhanced by the armrests, legs and runners, which are morticed together to form sleek squares. Conceived as an architectural element, with proportions designed accordingly, the BK12 lounge sofa is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. It can be supplied with slender, supportive cushions made from weather-resistant Sunbrella fabric for additional comfort.

Dimensions: Width - 132.5cm x Depth - 72.5cm x Height - 74.5cm
Delivery Time: Around 4/5 weeks
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.
