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.
