Danish-born architect and furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921–2003) earned his architecture degree from the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen, opening his own studio in Copenhagen in 1948.

A prominent figure in Danish Modernism alongside such masters as Kaare Klint, Hans J. Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl, and Nanna Ditzel, Kofod-Larsen viewed Scandinavian design not as a regional phenomenon but as part of international modernism. He designed for several leading midcentury manufacturers, both in Denmark and abroad. Larsen’s great success internationally, placed him as 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. Kofod-Larsen frequently worked with resplendent woods, such as teak and rosewood, including rich leathers.

Clean, sculptural lines characterize much of his pristine work. In 2003, Kofod-Larsen passed away and the designer’s pieces have become frequented collector items, due to his undeniable talent for honoring the innate qualities of his carefully chosen materials.
