Carl Hansen & Søn, Design Danois
Indoor-Outdoor  Carl Hansen & Søn  Bodil Kjær, 1959

The Indoor-Outdoor furniture collection, designed in 1959 by Danish architect Boldil Kjær, is a classic of Danish design. As its name suggests, it has been designed to be used both indoors and outdoors, thanks to the combination of the use of teak and a neat and elegant design.

The collection consists of a chair, a table, an armchair, a sofa, a side table, a sun lounger and a swing. Each element is made of solid teak from eco-responsible and labeled Vietnamese forests. The lines of elegant simplicity are characteristic of cubism and modernist architecture of the time.

Teak furniture is weather resistant. They can be oiled regularly to retain their original appearance or left without maintenance, in which case they will acquire a lovely silvery patina over time. Cushions in weather-resistant Sunbrella fabric are available as an option.

Bodil Kjær

Bodil Kjær is an influential Danish designer and professor. She has designed an important number of furniture pieces or rather "architectural elements" as she usually calls them.

The Danish designer has traveled around the world, which inspired her greatly. Not only were her designs groundbreaking she also actively participated in the spread of Danish Modern design principles. She wanted to create functional furniture systems that could work both in private areas and in work environments. Her work was touched by the relationship between design and architecture that she has great knowledge of.

Throughout her career, she kept on traveling. After school, she studied architecture in London and later learned to create spaces alongside experts such as Finn Juhl and Jørgen Ditzel. After a year in the United States she founded her own studio in Copenhagen in 1960. Then, after having received a scholarship to further her studies at the Royal College of Art and the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, she stayed there until 1979. There, she worked as a senior architect and later on established a studio that worked on projects such as residential homes cooled using solar energy.

She also taught at prestigious universities like Harvard, the Pratt institute or the Royal Academy Architecture in Copenhagen.
