Ib Kofod-Larsen Seal Lounge Chair in light linen blend fabric, Sweden 1950s

0.00

Early version of the 'Seal' lounge chair by Ib Kofod-Larsen in birch, produced by OPE, 1956. Re-upholstered in a light linen blend fabric by Pierre Frey.

The clear lined frame of this chair contrasts beautifully with the angled seating and gives the work an open and very photographical appearance. Due to the well chosen proportions and high quality of the design the Seal chair is very comfortable to sit in, also for longer reading or ipad sessions and is a true modern classic. Together with the Elizabeth chair and the Trol sideboard it belongs to the best works designed by Kofod-Larsen.

In 1956, the Danish furniture architect Ib Kofod-Larsen received an assignment from the Swedish furniture maker OPE Möbler (Olof Persons Fåtöljindustri) to design a series of “Danish” furniture in order to breathe life into the dying Swedish furniture industry. One of the most prominent pieces of this assignment was the Seal.

In very good condition; wood has minor marks, some light discoloration. Recently re-upholstered.
