Even though Ib achieved international success in the 1950s, and his Penguin Chair became one of Denmark’s best selling pieces in the US, he is almost nowhere to be found – and I hadn’t heard anything about him or his chair before I saw it in New York.
I have been roaming all my design books, even the most trusted ones, doesn’t not say anything about Ib Kofod-Larsen. Shame I think, but luckily for us, Danish Brdr. Petersen have started producing this wonderful and beautiful chair. It comes in a dining chair, lounge chair and a rocking chair version.
