Danish furniture company Menu launched a classic mid-century chair, which dates back to 1951. The original furniture piece was envisioned by Ib Kofod-Larsen and was designed to be used for knitting. The chair was exceptionally functional and aesthetically pleasing, reflecting Ib's approach to design, which was very much "rooted in reality." Channeling the inherent instrumentality and stylistic approach, Menu is now attempting to revive the spirit of the designer.

Therefore, the 2018 version is not only romanticized due to its historic value. It also entertains a certain sculptural aesthetic with "an exposed, triangular construction, a gently curved seat [...] and a backrest with distinctive cut-outs for resting the elbows when knitting or reading." Ideal for a cozy modern house, the classic mid-century chair will definitely add some personality to the interior.
