NG92101: Danish Lounge Chair Pair

NG92101
A Danish Mid-Century Pair of “Samso” Lounge Chairs Designed by the Danish Furniture Designer Ib Kofod-Larsen, 1960. Graceful and simple modern design of Rosewood outer frame and Beechwood seat frame with webbing and two original black leather cushions, with the brass placque from the the maker “Illums Bolighus, Kobenhaven” on each chair on the top side of each seat frame. The majority of these fine and rare chairs seen in the marketplace were made by OPE in Sweden and this may be the case for these chairs as well, with Ilums Bolighus being the retailer. However, these chairs were deaccessioned by the Royal Danish Embassy in Tokyo and it is possible that these were a specific commission since Illums Bolighus holds the  Royal Danish Warrant for Furniture to Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark. 

Minor signs of age an wear otherwise fine condition. 

Measuring: 28 in. high x 28 in. wide x 28 in. deep

20th century, circa 1960.

$15,000. / pair


Provenance: 

Deaccessioned from the Royal Danish Embassy to Japan, Daikanyama, Tokyo, 2003.


IB KOFOD-LARSEN(1921 - 2003)

A well-known Danish furniture designer and a Graduate of the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagen. In 1948 he won a competition of Holmegaard Glass as well as the annual prize of the Danish Kunsttischlerzunft. In the 1950s, Kofod-Larsen designs furniture for various companies at home and abroad, including names such as OPE, G-Plan and Faarup. Two well known designs are the "66" sideboard made of rosewood and the "Elizabeth Chair" from 1956,  named after her royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, after she was buying two of the armchairs in 1958. Later on, Kofod-Larsen is very successful in working with Selig, which acquired the rights to thousands of his furniture designs from the fifties and sold them on the market in United States. Characteristic of his work is an organic and minimalist design, as well as working with high quality materials such as teak, rosewood and precious leather. Furniture from this designer are considered to be collector’s items for their timeless beauty and high quality materials and craftsmanship are universally appreciated.

For another smaller example of a Guardian Lion see:
Pratapaditya Pal, The Sensuous Immortals: A Selection from the Pan-Asian Collection, LACMA 1978, fig: 144, p.238 with the following cataloguing commentary:
“Squatting lions such as this, invariably rendered as freestanding sculptures, are a familiar sight in most Khmer temples, generally placed as guardians on terraces and stairways. Although the concept originated in India, the lions are far more conspicuous in Cambodian temples. Since lions are not native to the region and hence unfamiliar to the artists, they are always treated conceptually and often the grinning or growling faces are somewhat caricatured. The present example may have come from the Phimeanakas temple terrace, although it is difficult to be certain. The fanciful head is more demonic that naturalistic and the mane on the broad chest is rendered almost like a coat of mail. The posture is essentially heraldic and the sculptor seems to have been concerned primarily with expressing physical strength through sheer volume.”
