The Penguin Rocking Chair is a rare Danish Modern icon designed by Danish furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen in 1953.
The Penguin Rocking Chair leans towards the American modernists from the 1950s and 1960s. So beautiful that it can be displayed as a work of art in any home, it is open in its construction with a curved back of oak or walnut veneer and has a seat upholstered in fabric or leather against the stringent steel frame.
Contrasting and playful, while being well-proportioned and fully formed, the Ib Kofod-Larsen-designed chair is a piece of Danish cultural heritage and design history – and maybe more modern than ever before with its beautiful silhouette and sculptural, organic lines and curves.
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.
