Ib Kofod-Larsen

Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921-2003) was a Danish designer and architect. He was educated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.

His storage units and chairs were popular in the 1950s and 1960s in Denmark where he designed for Selig and Faarup and in England, where he designed for G-Plan.

In the 1960s he also designed a line of furniture specifically for the Swedish market, but it had no commercial success, possibly because it was too minimalist for the Swedes.

His furniture, often in rosewood or palisander, is finally becoming recognized and appreciated in the United States. His organic designs of sideboards and chairs, usually with spindly legs and generous, comfortable seats, are fetching high prices these days among collectors of mid-century furniture.
