Defined by an exposed, triangular construction, a gently curved seat and back ideally pitched for relaxation, and distinctive cut-outs for resting the elbows when reading (or, of course, knitting) the Knitting Chair a affirmed Kofod-Larsen’s reputation as a master of proportion and unexpected, sculptural form.

It was put into production when release din the 1950s – but only as a limited edition. Since then, the sophisticated, inventive design has become an increasingly valuable and sought-a er collector’s item. The lounge chair is beautiful from every angle, making it easy to t into any room layout. And, given the chair’s enveloping comfort, it has a relatively small footprint, making it a match for both compact and more spacious interiors.

The newspapers and knitting needles of Kofod-Larsen’s day may have partially given way to smartphones and tablets – but rest assured: the designer’s clever armrests accommodate our modern unwinding just fine, too. 

The solid oak frame is CNC-milled and treated with a wax-oiled finish. Seat and backrest are made from form-pressed plywood and upholstered in textile or leather. Assembly is done by hand.

Ib Kofod-Larsen

Copenhagen, Denmark

Danish-born architect and furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921–2003) earned his architecture degree from the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen, opening his own studio in Copenhagen in 1948. A prominent gure in Danish Modernism alongside such masters as Kaare Klint, Hans J. Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl and Nanna Ditzel, Kofod-Larsen viewed Scandinavian design not as a regional phenomenon but as part of international modernism. He enjoyed great success internationally, becoming the best- selling Danish architect in the US in the 50s, working with furniture manufacturers in Germany, Sweden, Japan, the US and the UK, and exhibiting throughout Europe and the US.
