Description

These are a fabulous set of six original G Plan dining chairs in teak with black vinyl seat pads designed by the Danish designer Ib Kofod-Larsen. The legs are beautifully tapered and the backs are gently curved.

Furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen was born Denmark in 1921 and studied at the Danish Royal Academy in Copenhagen. In 1948, he won the Holmegaard glass competition as well as an annual award from the Danish Cabinetmakers Guild. The latter drew the attention of Danish furniture manufacturer Faarup Møbelfabrik, and Kofod-Larsen went on to create some of his most beautiful works for the company, including his rosewood Model 66 sideboard, during the 1950s. He also designed furniture for several other leading midcentury manufacturers, both at home and abroad, including High Wycombe, Christensen & Larsen, Carlo Gahrn, Bovenkamp, Petersens, and Fredericia Furniture.

Kofod-Larsen frequently worked with gorgeous woods, such as teak and rosewood, as well rich leathers. Clean, sculptural lines characterize much of his work. Notable designs include the U-56 or Elizabeth Chair (1956), composed of a light teak frame and upholstered leather that was reputed to have been named for England’s Queen Elizabeth II after she purchased a pair during a visit to Denmark in 1958. Kofod-Larsen passed away in 2003. Today, the designer’s pieces have become more frequently collected, in large part due to Kofod-Larsen’s talent for honouring the innate qualities of his chosen materials.

The vinyl is in super condition as we’ve had the seat pads recovered by a professional upholsterer. The chairs are structurally sound but, as you’d expect, show some signs of age and use. These are almost unnoticeable when the chairs are in situ around a dining table however we’ve taken some photographs to highlight these.
