Ib Kofod-Larsen Afromosia Teak Candidate Lounge Chairs, circa 1960

$10,941.64per set

About

A pair of Afromosia African teak 'Kandidaten', (Candidate), lounge chairs produced by Olof Perssons Fatoljindustri (O.P.E.) in Jonkoping, Sweden, circa 1960. Danish master Ib Kofod-Larsen gained popularity in his native Denmark in the 1950s via his work with Christen & Larsen and Slagelse Mobelvaerk amongst others. His work became increasingly sought-after during the later 1950s and 1960s, as he was commissioned by Olof Perssons to produced a collection of furniture specifically for the ailing domestic Swedish market. This highly successful range included the 'Salen' (Seal), 'Samso' and 'Kandidaten' (Candidate) lounge chairs. These examples have been carefully restored at our London workshops. The new feather filled cushions have been covered in premium tan brown aniline leather. Other upholstery options available by request. Also available as single chairs.
