BK14 Sunbed

By Carl Hansen


  • Description

    Sleek and streamlined yet reassuringly robust, the BK14 sunbed was designed in 1959 by Danish architect Bodil Kjær. As pleasing to look at as it is to lie on, the sunbed is part of her Indoor-Outdoor Series, which was inspired by Cubist forms and contemporary architecture.

    As with the rest of the collection, the sunbed’s solid teak construction has a simple geometric quality and is designed to weather beautifully over time. Complementing cushions in weather-resistant Sunbrella fabric are also available, offering elegant lounging in optimum comfort.

    Danish professor and architect Bodil Kjær has significantly contributed to the spread of Danish Modern design principles through her travels, knowledge gathering and promotion of the relationship between design and architecture.

    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.

    Bodil Kjaer
    Architect MAA, designer and professor Bodil Kjær grew up in Jutland, Denmark but travelled to London, New York and Washington D.C. to study and work. Today she has a resume of more than 56 pages. She has worked with some of the most prominent names within architecture and design during her career, including the Danish architect Arne Jacobsen and the American designer Paul McCobb. Besides working with other recognised designers and architects all over the world, Bodil Kjær has managed to make quite a name for herself. As one of the few female architects and designers of her generation who managed to do so, she never actually had a career plan as such. It has simply always been the urge to set new standards and to improve herself that has been her motivation. One of her most recognised designs, the Cross-Plex™ table lamp, is a brilliant example of her mission to design with only the absolute necessary. Bodil Kjær has what she calls a problem-solving approach to design; she wants to create solutions to ‘functional, economic and aesthetic problems and she refers to her own designs as elements of architecture.
