Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921-2003) gained prominence in the 1950s and 1960s Danish design era, focusing largely on international markets rather than Denmark. Despite being overshadowed by his contemporaries, he is now celebrated for his sophisticated, well-proportioned furniture featuring beautiful silhouettes and organic lines. His designs, including The Penguin and The Seal chairs, highlight meticulous craftsmanship, teak and palisander materials, and a focus on comfort and tactile quality.
