The Knitting Chair by Ib Kofod-Larsen, first launched as a limited edition in 1951, makes a triumphant return to the world of modern Danish design.
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 clean, sculptural lines achieved today in collaboration with skilled craftspeople in Sweden, and the high-end, natural materials make the Knitting Chair an unforgettable piece of Danish design. The solid oak frame is available in Natural Oak and Dark Stained Oak upholstered in selected leather and fabric combinations.

A prominent figure in Danish Modernism alongside such masters as Kaare Klint, Hans J. Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl and Nanna Ditzel, Ib Kofod-Larsen viewed Scandinavian design not as a regional phenomenon but as part of international modernism. He enjoyed great success internationally, becoming 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.
