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 affirmed Kofod-Larsen’s reputation as a master of proportion and unexpected, sculptural form. It was put into production – but only as a limited edition. Since then, the elegant, inventive design has become an increasingly valuable and sought-after collector’s item.

The Knitting Chair is beautiful from every angle, making it easy to place anywhere in a room. Given the chair’s enveloping comfort, it has a relatively small footprint, which makes it an easy fit in compact interiors as well as in more spacious ones. The design also stands out on comfort – the result of Kofod-Larsen’s constant care to ensure ideal angles and lumbar support. The clean, sculptural lines – achieved through the designer’s close work with joiners – and the high-end, natural materials make for an unforgettable, conversation-sparking silhouette.

The Knitting Chair is useful for everything from small restaurant spaces and bedsides to exhibition spaces. The shine of the honed marble surface against the matte steel results in a versatile visual identity that is both modernist and industrial.

 Care & cleaning:
As a natural material, leather requires looking after. If you care for the leather in the right way, it will become even more beautiful over time. Here are a few tips: Over time if you see the need for cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner once or twice a month with a soft brush to remove any dust. Once or twice a year for thorough cleaning, use the foam from soap flakes stirred in warm water. Apply the foam with a dry soft cloth, minimising any contact with water. Avoid bar soap, saddle soap, leather cleaners, household detergents or chemical products. Protect from direct sunlight, excessive heat and sharp objects.

Ib Kofod-Larsen Design

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 figure 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 designed for several leading midcentury manufacturers, both in Denmark and abroad. Larsen's great success internationally, placed him as 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. Kofod-Larsen frequently worked with resplendent woods, such as teak and rosewood, including rich leathers.

Clean, sculptural lines characterize much of his pristine work. In 2003, Kofod-Larsen passed away and the designer's pieces have become frequented collector items, due to his undeniable talent for honoring the innate qualities of his carefully chosen materials.

Ib Kofod-Larsen tasteful and distinctive designs feature comfortable materials and minimal lines, with circular seats and pointed legs. His organic and minimalist pieces have been strongly sought after the 1950s and 1960s.
