Ib Kofod-Larsen's Knitting Chair, first incorporated as a limited edition in 1951, marks a triumphant return to the world of modern Danish design according to Audo Copenhagen's concept of "modernism reinvented". This is the brand's first foray into classic furniture. The chair's sense of proportion and unparalleled quality make it a natural choice to fit into contemporary interiors.

Defined by an exposed triangular construction, a gently curved seat and backrest, ideally angled for relaxation. Its distinctive cutouts allow elbows to be lifted while reading (or, of course, knitting). The Knitting Armchair confirmed Kofod-Larsen's reputation as a master of unexpected, sculptural proportions and shapes. The sophisticated and inventive design of the Knitting Chair is an increasingly valuable and sought-after collector's item.

The chair looks good from every angle, making it easy to fit into any room. Newspapers and knitting needles from the days of Kofod-Larsen may have partially given way to smartphones and tablets - but rest assured: the enveloping comfort of the Knitting Chair suits our modern habits perfectly.

Audo Copenhagen is thrilled to bring the Knitting Chair experience to a new generation, with the natural materials the designer loved so much. Conceived nearly seventy years ago, it's the type of design that reminds us of what being a classic means.

Nowadays, the Knitting Chair is made in Sweden by experienced craftsmen and each piece is meticulously constructed, combining artisanal techniques with innovative technologies.

Ib Kofod-Larsen

Danish architect and furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921-2003) graduated as an architect from the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen, before opening his own studio in Copenhagen in 1948.
A prominent figure in Danish modernism in the Alongside masters such as Kaare Klint, Hans J. Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl and Nanna Ditzel, Kofod-Larsen saw Scandinavian design not as a regional phenomenon but as part of international modernism. He designed for several major mid-century manufacturers, both in Denmark and abroad. Larsen's great international success placed him as the best-selling Danish architect in the United States in the 1950s, working with furniture manufacturers in Germany, Sweden, Japan, the United States and the United Kingdom. United, and exhibiting throughout Europe and the United States. Kofod-Larsen frequently worked with resplendent woods, such as teak and rosewood, as well as rich leathers. Clean, sculptural lines characterize much of his immaculate work.
In 2003, Kofod-Larsen passed away and the designer's pieces became frequent collector's items, due to his undeniable talent for honoring the innate qualities of his carefully chosen materials.
