Although he felt himself to be a craftsman and had no academic approach to furniture design, there is something poetic and artistic in his designs. Soft lines. Visual lightness. Graphic purity. Free, artistic expression.
He was a purist. A man with an eye for detail. At first glance, his furniture may seem simple, but upon closer inspection, it is full of details. He drew, sculpted, prototyped, participated in production, and participated in the entire process through every test and launch. He was a creative designer, perhaps one of the greatest designers of the golden age of Danish design.
Today, Ib Kofod-Larsen is called one of the most underrated but most exciting names on the Danish design scene. He had a successful career in the 1950s and 1960s when Danish design flourished worldwide.
