OFFICE DESK
Bodil Kjær, 1959
The iconic Office Desk, widely known for its appearance in the James Bond movies, has been regarded by many as “the most beautiful desk in the world.” Seemingly floating in mid-air, the pure and simplistic design of this desk made it the first of its kind. Visually light and stunningly simple, this piece offers beauty without sacrificing storage space, perfect for the home or the office.

SOFA
Bodil Kjær, 1959
The upholstered series by Kjær has produced many career-defining designs, including a sofa, lounge chair, bench, and low table designed with the intention of being used in public spaces. Exclusively available through Suite NY, this mid-century piece exudes the classic elegance that is characteristic of Kjær’s work. In addition to its refined look, the detachable seat and back cushions provide remarkable comfort.

CROSS PLEXI
Bodil Kjær, 1959
The Cross Plexi coffee table is a timeless design, practical and spacious, it has the ability to fit into any room. Because of its reflective quality, this piece is aesthetically dynamic, exuding an ever-changing appearance caused by the different reflections of sun and light. No matter the interior, the Cross Plexi is an adaptive piece that can be either a subtle addition or a statement piece in a variety of settings. Exclusively available at Suite NY.

UPHOLSTERED BENCH
Bodil Kjær, 1959
Another piece of Kjær’s upholstered series, the upholstered bench has impeccable tailored upholstery and unique polished metal vaulted legs.

CROSSES VASE
Bodil Kjær, 1961
This versatile and innovative vase by Kjær is in production once again, more than fifty years after its original inception. Designed with a particular visual effect in mind, the Cross Vase is for all those flower lovers who enjoy bringing a small piece of the garden into the home without sacrificing its natural look. Made of hand-blown glass, this piece can either serve as a way to display flowers as they would look like naturally, or stand on its own as a decorative piece.
