Ib Kofod-Larsen

Danish-born architect and furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921–2003) earned his architecture degree from the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen, opening his own studio in Copenhagen in 1948. A prominent figure in Danish Modernism alongside such masters as Kaare Klint, Hans J. Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl and Nanna Ditzel, Kofod-Larsen viewed Scandinavian design not as a regional phenomenon but as part of international modernism. He enjoyed great success internationally, becoming the best-selling Danish architect in the US in the 50s, working with furniture manufacturers in Germany, Sweden, Japan, the US and the UK, and exhibiting throughout Europe and the US.
