We are proud to present our first design from a Danish designer. In this case, Danish architect, professor, and designer, Bodil Kjær. The iconic desk, designed in 1959, was the first of its kind with its pure and simplistic design, almost floating mid-air. Bodil Kjærs’ design has been called ‘The most beautiful desk in the world’ – or, the ‘James Bond desk’ as it was featured prominently in three early Bond movies.

Bodil Kjær has designed a number of furniture pieces or, architectural elements, as she prefers to call them. Her aim was never to create sculptural statements but rather to find functional, economic, and aesthetic solutions

Through her vast travels, Danish professor and architect Bodil Kjær has gained deep insight into the relationship between design and architecture and  contributed significantly to the spread of Danish Modern design principles ­– this was not, however, the main purpose of her travels. Kjær wanted to explore methods and materials that could be used to realize her ideas for functional furniture systems and work environments.

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. 

She also gained a respect for nature and an interest in the dynamics of society.

As a furniture designer, Kjær views furniture construction from a purely technical perspective, interplayed with modern architecture and created for people. She always considers context and has collaborated with different professions in her desire to optimize physical settings. 

Her furniture systems support creative people in their work processes, and her designs include indoor and outdoor furniture, light fixtures, a service trolley and vases, all characterized by lightness and a functionalist expression.
