Ib Kofod-Larsen

The Danish furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen was one of the most popular designers in the local and then later on, the international, spheres. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Denmark and carved out a name for creating visually elegant and compelling organic furniture designs that have become increasingly coveted over the years.

Ib Kofod-Larsen’s Shell Chair (1950; Napoli Lounge Chair) is uniquely aesthetically pleasing to the eye, with a one-piece curved backrest extending into small winged armrests. The chair itself is slightly tilted to increase the comfort level of the user further and looks especially arresting from the side, resembling an easel of sorts. In contrast, the back view of the chair is almost austere in looks.

The chair shown above is a replica.
