About the Designer & Manufacturer
In 1948 Kofod-Larsen received an award at the Danish Cabinetmakers Guild competition which brought him to the attention of Faarup Møbelfabrik, one of Denmark’s leading furniture manufacturers. This partnership would lead to some of Kofod-Larsen’s more beautiful works; most notable the ‘Model 66’ sideboard produced by Faarup in the 1950’s.
