About the Designer: 

Furniture maker and architect Ib Kofod-Larsen was one of the greatest design minds to emerge from mid century modern movement in Denmark, and his impact was felt across the world, especially in the United States as many of his chairs were admired and exported during the period. 

Ib Kofod-Larsen was an acclaimed Danish designer with great recognition worldwide as his name and furniture designs reached far beyond his home country.

Kofod-Larsen was trained as a cabinetmaker with the highest honors in 1944, and later completed his education as an architect from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1948. Throughout his career, Ib Kofod-Larsen worked with seating positions, construction, upholstery and bentwood shells. Due to his experimental approach to furniture, Dansk Glasfiber Industri hired him in 1953 to cooperate in developing heat-hardened polyester as part of the design of new furniture types. Through out his life he focused mainly on furniture, but also designed radio and television cabinets, silver, glass, fabrics, textiles, curtains, wallpaper and industrial design.

Kofod-Larsen, was known for making exemplary seating, his chairs are architectural in form. Larsen understood the attention to detail, quality materials, and functional design ethos that defined the Scandinavian modernism. Kofod-Larsen has since become a figure head of the Danish Modern Movement.
