Description

Bodil Kjær, Professor, Architect, was born in Denmark in 1932. She was educated in Denmark, England and the USA, and 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 series of elements of architecture to solve problems of functional and aesthetic nature. These pieces of furniture, lamps and glass 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 as well as in Europe. From this series is here offered is sofa model 57 in the original black leather upholstery and chromed steel. Some of the first architects to specify the furnitures of Bodil Kjær for the buildings they were designing were Paul Rudolph, the head of the school of architecture at Yale University, and Marcel Breuer.
