Forever contemporary: Bodil Kjaer

Danish designer Bodil Kjaer (born in 1932) has always been a brilliant interpreter of her time. This last Spring Kjaer and her fab design was celebrated at the Milano furniture fair with a re-launch of no less than 25 interesting and handsome objects, from the smart Inside/Outside furniture for Carl Hansen & Son to the beautiful Crosses glass work for Holmegaard.
