Menu's Knitting Chair by Ib Kofod-Larsen is a cleverly designed lounge chair from 1951. A combination of an airy solid wood frame and a seat upholstered in genuine sheepskin, the Knitting Chair breathes a playful lightness of mid-century modernism from every angle. The chair was named for the elbow cut-outs designed to support arms when knitting – or reading a book or browsing a phone. Menu has relaunched the Knitting Chair under the Modernism Reimagined collection.

Ib Kofod-Larsen

Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921-2003) was one of the pioneers of the Danish modern in the 1950s. Kofod-Larsen received his architecture degree from the Royal Danish Academy, and he also worked as a designer – one of his best-known works is the Knitting Chair from 1951. Rather than a regional phenomenon, Kofod-Larsen saw Scandinavian design as part of international modernism, and he became one of the best-selling Danish architects in the United States in the 1950s. He also collaborated with many furniture manufacturers in the US, Europe and Japan.
