Part of a collection of exquisitely crafted outdoor furniture in solid teak, the BK16 is a practical companion to a sun lounger or lounge chair. Perfectly proportioned to match the height of the collection’s chairs, the BK16 side table exhibits superior craftsmanship and a striking simplicity that embraces a clean-lined, geometric quality.
Robust and durable, the functional side table is a classic example of understated Danish design. Bodil Kjaer's philosophy was to create solutions that were both functional, economic, and aesthetic, and the BK collection embodies all of these qualities. The sharp lines and effortless simplicity stand as a testament to Kjaer's genius.
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.
