After graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Denmark, Ib Kofod-Larsen designed industrial products and furniture for studios. He participated in many competitions for Danish craftsmen at that time, and won various awards including Gold Prize at the HOLMEGAARDS glass competition. One of his most famous works is Elizabeth Chair (IL-01) in 1956.
Furniture desginer Ib Kofod-Larsen"s furniture from the 1950"s and 60"s are today more desirable than ever before. Danish Kofod-Larsen designed storage and seating for the Swedish market in the 60"s but did not really reach any commercial success. Maybe his organic design was too extreme for the Swedish taste at the time. In Denmark, on the contrary, his sideboards produced by Faarup won immediate recognition. Today his creations are sold at higher and higher prices, as his clean designs, often in beautiful rosewood or palisander, have become highly appreciated by a global community of design enthusiasts.
