Ib Kofod-Larsen

Danish, 1921 - 2003

Danish furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen was born in 1921. He is well known for working with teak, rosewood and leathers and creating pieces with clean, sculptural lines. In 1948 he received an award at the Danish Cabinetmakers Guild which brought him to the attention of Faarup Møbelfabrik. His most notable work with this partnership was the “Model 66” produced by Faarup in the 1950s. Dansk Glasfiber Industri sought Kofod-Larsen in 1953 to develop heat-hardened polyester as part of the design of new furniture types. He also designed media cabinets, silver, glass, fabrics, textiles, curtains, wallpaper and other industrial designs. Other notable designs by Koford-Larsen include the U-56 or Elizabeth Chair (1956) and the Penguin or Shell chair (1953). Koford-Larsen passed away in 2003 but his works continue to be admired and frequently collected due to his talent with quality materials.
