Description

Arguably one of Ib Kofod-Larsen’s best-known designs, The Seal is an elegant armchair typical of its time – and yet entirely timeless. The angled frame and armrests and leather upholstery put comfort at the fore, inviting lounging. And despite being made of heavy materials, it has a lightness to it; the shell appears to float inside the wooden frame. Named after the Swedish ski resort, The Seal is a fine example of Ib Kofod-Larsen’s organic design and focus on detail and comfort.

The chair is available with a low or high back.

Dimensions: H: 92 , SH: 40, Arm H: 61,  W: 80 and D: 82 cm.

Materials: Oak or Walnut, plastic, steel, solid beech, plywood,
foam, felt, quilt foam, pocket springs, rubber. The chair is available in choice of 3 fabrics.

Danish-born architect and furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921–2003) earned his architecture degree from the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen, opening his own studio in Copenhagen in 1948. A prominent figure in Danish Modernism alongside such masters as Kaare Klint, Hans J. Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl and Nanna Ditzel, Kofod-Larsen viewed Scandinavian design not as a regional phenomenon but as part of international modernism. He enjoyed great success internationally, becoming the best-selling Danish architect in the US in the 50s, working with furniture manufacturers in Germany, Sweden, Japan, the US and the UK, and exhibiting throughout Europe and the US.
