Penguin Rocking Chair

from Audo

penguin rocking chair

Design Ib Kofod-Larsen, 1953
Natural oak or walnut veneer, black steel, black ash
Made by Audo

Calm, harmonious and shaped to cradle the body as it sits, the Penguin's straightforward design provides a remarkably high level of comfort. 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 against the stringent steel frame sitting atop black ash rockers. Contrasting and playful, while being well-proportioned and fully formed, the chair, designed by furniture designer Ib Kofod-Larsen in 1953, 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 is the epitome of Danish Modern. His furniture creations sit in the tension field between art and design. Although they have clear references to the mid-century period, they proffer a contemporary aesthetic that makes it difficult to decode whether they were designed then or now. Defined by a simplicity and straightforwardness that belies their complex craft and thoughtful details, Kofod-Larsen's elegant designs are rare examples of Danish furniture at its finest.

This version of the Penguin Rocking Chair features a natural wood veneer seat & back. Please contact Hive Modern to order a version with an upholstered seat or fully upholstered.
