Item Description

Rosewood coffee table designed by Ib Kofod-Larsen for Seffle Möbelfabrik. Exceptional table with a polyester top with cast in natural pebbles. All original condition with light wear, providing a nice patina. Ib Kofod-Larsen was born in 1921 in Denmark. Kofod-Larsen was trained as a cabinetmaker with the highest honours in 1944, and later completed his education at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1948. The same year he opened his own studio in the Danish capital, embarking on a long and successful career. Throughout his career, Ib Kofod-Larsen worked with seating positions, construction, upholstery and bentwood shells. Due to his experimental approach to furniture, Dansk Glasfiber Industri hired him in 1953 to cooperate in developing heat-hardened polyester as part of the design of new furniture types. He focused mainly on furniture, but also designed radio and television cabinets, silver, glass, fabrics, textiles, curtains, wallpaper, and industrial design. Kofod-Larsen viewed Scandinavian design not as a regional phenomenon but as part of international modernism. Kofod-Larsen frequently worked with resplendent woods such as teak and rosewood, also including rich leathers.
