Designer Ib Kofod Larsen
Furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen was born Denmark in 1921 and studied at the Danish Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.
In 1948, he won the Holmegaard glass competition as well as an annual award from the Danish Cabinetmakers Guild.
Ib Kofod Larsen designed industrial products and furniture for G-Plan and Faarup, two of the world’s top furniture companies. His work became increasingly desirable during the 1950s and 1960s, with his typically featured organic and minimalist designs.
He also designed furniture for several other leading midcentury manufacturers, including High Wycombe, Christensen & Larsen, Carlo Gahrn, Bovenkamp, Petersens, and Fredericia Furniture.
Kofod-Larsen frequently worked with gorgeous woods, such as teak and rosewood, palisander, as well rich leathers.
Clean, sculptural lines characterize much of his work.
Notable designs include the U-56 or Elizabeth Chair (1956), composed of a light teak frame and upholstered leather that was purported to have been named for England’s Queen Elizabeth II after she purchased a pair during a visit to Denmark in 1958; as well as the airy and modern Penguin chair (1953).
