In 1956 the Danish furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen designed the sofa group the Seal consisting of two chairs – one high and one low – as well as a two-seater sofa.

Today, the furniture group is re-launched by Brdr. Petersen Polstermøbelfabrik in Aarhus.

The Seal comes upholstered in fabric or leather with a frame in oak, walnut or teak.

Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921-2003) belongs to the same generation as his more famous colleagues Hans J. Wegner and Børge Mogensen, and like them, he took the road from the carpentry workshop to the School of Architecture.

From the late 1940s he designed a number of distinctive furniture for the Cabinetmakers’ Guild Furniture Exhibitions.

Kofod-Larsen is perhaps not that well known in Scandinavia as his furniture has been produced and sold abroad mostly, especially in the United States and Britain.
