Knitting chair by Ib Kofod-Larsen for Menu.

Ib Kofod-Larsen's Knitting chair first debuted in 1951 but is now making a return under Menu's concept of “Modernism Reimagined”. The chair was first produced as a limited edition, launching at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Furniture Exhibition and as a result, quickly became a valuable collector's edition.  

The low lounge chair is constructed with an exposed, triangular frame with gently curved seat and back, featuring signature cut-outs to accommodate the elbows when reading (or knitting). The chair's enveloping and well-proportioned form, combined with the ingenious armrests, allows for maximum comfort. 

Menu has reproduced the knitting chair in natural materials favoured by Kofod-Larsen, its relatively small footprint affords suitability to both compact and more spacious interiors. The classic, handcrafted design will make a beautiful addition to any contemporary space.

The dark stained solid oak frame is CNC milled and treated with a wax-oiled finish. Both seat and backrest are made from form-pressed plywood with leather upholstery in Dakar 0311.

Handmade in Sweden.

71.3w x 66.9d x 30/90.6cmh
