Unique Burl Wood Kofod-Larsen Penguin Chair

A truly unique version of a mid century icon. The penguin chair itself is a hybrid, with the back and seat produced in Denmark and the frames produced here in the US. This one is unique because the the backrest is done in a burl wood, and this is an option that was never offered to the public. So it must have been done as a special order. I have yet come across a reference to another example with a burled backrest. The back does retain it ‘made in Denmark stamp in the bottom edge, and it does have the correct number of layers so it is most definitely original and not an after the fact modification or replacement. The back is original and in excellent condition, the frame shows some very minor light wear, and the seat has been recovered in a neutral gray. Seat height is 16″

21″ wide x 26″ deep x 30″ tall
