Designed by Ib Kofod-LarsenRead Bio

Originally designed by Danish architect Ib Kofod-Larsen in 1953, the Penguin Dining Chair remains popular today as an icon of Scandinavian mid-century design. Penguin is lightweight and elegant, with a gently curved upholstered back and seat crafted from plywood. The steel legs provide a stable base and contrast the chair's organic curves with straight lines.

      About Ib Kofod-Larsen

      Ib Kofod-Larsen (1923 - 2001) was a Danish architect and designer who enjoyed a successful career in the 1950s and 60s while Danish design was flourishing around the world. After studying at the Danish Royal Academy, Kofod-Larsen began his design career and won awards at the Holmegaard glass competition and the Danish Cabinetmakers Guild annual exhibition. While his work was often overshadowed in Denmark by contemporaries such as Kaare Klint and Arne Jacobsen, his work with American, British, and German brands brought him international renown.

      Kofod-Larsen's works are characterized by the use of leather upholstery and rich woods, such as teak and rosewood, along with clean, sculptural lines. His notable pieces include the Penguin Chair (1953), which was produced by Selig and became highly popular in the American market, and the U-56 Chair (1956), commonly known as the Elizabeth Chair after Queen Elizabeth II purchased a pair on a visit to Denmark.
