The Knitting Lounge Chair was designed by Ib Kofod-Larsen for the brand Menu.
Menu is a Danish furniture brand that brings together up-coming contemporary designers with Scandinavian legacy designers. The company strives to make living spaces multifunctional. The furniture and accessories in their range can be put together to suit the homeowner - each piece complements the others. Ib Kofod-Larsen was a furniture designer and leading figure in Danish Modernism. His designs combined simplicity with comfort using top craftsmanship in every step of the process.
The Knitting Lounge Chair is a design classic that was originally created in 1951 with cut-outs specifically added to give knitters elbow room. The design was hugely popular throughout the 50s and 60s, and thanks to the current interest in mid-century Scandinavian furniture, the Knitting Lounge Chair has been reintroduced. With a curved back and triangular frame, the chair looks good from every angle and can be placed in any part of a room. Offering the ideal position for reading the paper, the seat height is 30cm which is lower than a dining chair. The frame is made from stained, waxed solid oak, with the seat and back created from leather which takes on a pleasingly worn patina over time.
