Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921-2003) was a Danish designer, best known for his mid-century Scandinavian style pieces. Slightly forgotten for many years, he enjoyed the greatest success between the 1950s and 1960s, when his furnishings were designed above all for foreign markets and in particular for the American one. Kofod-Larsen, averse to conceptual excesses, saw himself as a craftsman: he didn't limit himself to designing the furnishings, but followed every phase of their development up to prototyping and production. His furnishings in precious woods such as teak or rosewood stood out for the purity of the forms and the sophistication of the details, so much so that they are still very current today. His best-known creation at the time was the Elizabeth Chair, which took on this name after some specimens had been purchased by Queen Elizabeth II of England herself, while today his Knitting armchair is back in popularity. They are all produced by Menu, which inherited the production rights by purchasing Brdr in 2021. Petersen that Kofod-Larsen originally made them for.
