Bodil Kjaer, Rosewood & Chrome Desk.
E. Pedersen & Son, Denmark and C.I. Design, USA. Designed 1959.
One of those pieces which pop up occasionally either at the back of an auction house or a swanky showroom and regardless of condition, set the place on fire.
Could be down to the spacious, minimalist design, way ahead of its time, or the fact the desk was used in two Bond films. Might even be the rumour both Michael Caine & Prince Philip owned one in their day. Then again, could be that if found in good original or sharp restored condition, they’d fetch a price equivalent to that of a well equipped Jaguar car, or even a modest terraced house in areas of the north west of England (good retirement plan). Talking of retirement plans..
