Bodil Kjær is one the last living mid-century Scandinavian design pioneers. She designed the Principal series in 1961 as part of an architectural exploration of interior solutions for modern living, called Elements of Architecture. Comprising a dining table and an upholstered dining chair, the Principal series is the epitome of her forward-thinking, cosmopolitan outlook and her modernistic design language.
The solid wood dining table boasts a clarified form, where a simple angle on each leg is repeated and finishes as a part of the table top. The dining chair has a circular seat and a gently rounded backrest, and the beautiful upholstering adds a softness to the clear, unfussed geometry.
