The Penguin Lounge Chair is a mid-century masterpiece. Reclining and harmonious, but with plenty of boldness, it is characterised by calmness and balance. Sitting in this deep, low chair feels comfortable and safe. The chair embraces you.
When furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen designed the Penguin Chair in 1953, he focused on the person who was to sit in it. Its curved back and angled seat cradle the body, and its otherwise remarkably straightforward design provides a surprisingly high level of comfort. The Penguin Lounge Chair has a graphic purity that enables it to interact seamlessly with other furniture pieces.
Ib Kofod-Larsen's furniture exudes dignity. Beautiful silhouettes and sculptural, organic lines and curves are shaped from solid natural oak or walnut into the timeless Penguin Chair that delights with its beauty and function.
A celebration of materials and form, the chair stands out among many other mid-century Danish designers because of Kofod-Larsen’s talent for honouring the inherent qualities of the materials.
The Penguin Chair is synonymous with considered and lasting design, crafted from high-quality materials that add character and durability. The slightly oversized curved back and angled seat of the Penguin Chair cradle the body and provide a surprisingly high level of comfort in the otherwise very simple design.
