Knitting Lounge — Oak, Natural Sheepskin
Audo by Ib Kofod-Larsen

This piece is part of the AAVVGG Archive and not currently part of the collection.

Defined by an exposed, triangular construction, a gently curved seat and back ideally pitched for relaxation, and distinctive cut-outs for resting the elbows when reading (or, of course, knitting) the Knitting Chair a affirmed Kofod-Larsen’s reputation as a master of proportion and unexpected, sculptural form.

It was put into production when release din the 1950s – but only as a limited edition. Since then, the sophisticated, inventive design has become an increasingly valuable and sought-a er collector’s item. The lounge chair is beautiful from every angle, making it easy to t into any room layout. And, given the chair’s enveloping comfort, it has a relatively small footprint, making it a match for both compact and more spacious interiors.

The newspapers and knitting needles of Kofod-Larsen’s day may have partially given way to smartphones and tablets – but rest assured: the designer’s clever armrests accommodate our modern unwinding just fine, too. 

The solid oak frame is CNC-milled and treated with a wax-oiled finish. Seat and backrest are made from form-pressed plywood and upholstered in textile or leather. Assembly is done by hand.
