BK13 | swing sofa

This variant: Teak
By Bodil Kjær

The BK13 swing sofa was designed in 1959 by Bodil Kjær as part of a series of beautifully crafted, architecturally inspired indoor-outdoor furniture. As with the rest of the series, the Danish architect looked to Cubism for inspiration for the sofa’s precise, streamlined form, which is crafted from solid teak. Designed to withstand harsh weather, the swing sofa also offers superior comfort, suspended from knotted ropes for a relaxing rocking motion. Designed for indoors and out, it can be supplied with cushions made from weather-resistant Sunbrella fabric as well as an A-frame for easy suspension.
