Born in Denmark in 1932, Bodil Kjær practised as an architect, designer and planner from her own offices in Copenhagen and London.
Between 1955 and 1963, while designing public interiors, Bodil Kjær developed a collection of furniture, lamps and glassware that were not designed directly for production, but as other architects discovered them and wanted them for their buildings, they were put into production and marketed in the USA and Europe.
Some of these pieces are still available today, mostly at auctions, but may also be seen in three early Bond movies, and in recent British films and television series.
