BK16 Side Table

By Carl Hansen

£505.00

  • Description

    The BK16 side table was designed in 1959 by Danish architect and professor Bodil Kjær. Part of a collection of beautifully crafted indoor-outdoor furniture in solid teak, its Cubist-inspired form echoes other designs in the series, all of which have a clean-lined and geometric quality.
    Perfectly proportioned to match the height of the collection’s lounge chair, the BK16 side table displays the same superior craftsmanship and striking simplicity that underpins the entire Indoor-Outdoor Series.

    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.
