Knitting Lounge Chair, Sheepskin


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.
