Kofod-Larsen. Design Legend

In 1962 G Plan went Danish. To meet the increasing demand for Scandinavian imported furniture, G Plan hired Danish designer Ib Kofod-Larsen. He created an entirely new and exclusive range for them – G Plan Danish was born.

Kofod-Larsen was an architect and furniture designer. After graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Denmark, he was quick to establish a reputation as one of the best designers both in Denmark and internationally. His designs were popular in the 60s and have since gained new popularity as his furniture remains extremely sought after.

Kofod-Larsen based his inspiration for the Danish range on the natural beauty of wood in its rawest form. Every tree is an individual and every inch of a tree bears an entirely unique graining, so that every piece of furniture produced is one-of-a-kind in the beauty of its delicate surface markings.

His work was recognisable through his clean lines, often in beautiful rosewood or palisander and have become highly coveted by design collectors over the years. The highlight of his Danish range was a 7ft 6inch sideboard in teak, which had unique, square rosewood handles. It was in the latest fashion for the era and looked stunning which led to Kofod-Larsen becoming one of the most influential furniture designers of the time, and someone we at G Plan are very proud to have worked with.
