The company behind MENU – Designers Company – expands Heritage Design Collection with acquisition of Brdr. Petersen and global rights for all Ib Kofod-Larsen designs
We are pleased to announce that we have successfully acquired Brdr. Petersen as an add-on to Designers Company – the company behind MENU – and the global rights for all Ib Kofod-Larsen designs.
Danish furniture maker Brdr. Petersen was established in 1973 by twin brothers Egon and Erling. Through changing times, Brdr. Petersen has retained the same ethos of honesty and commitment to quality that initially laid the foundation of the furniture workshop. Located in Fredericia, Denmark, a small team of dedicated upholsterers and craftsmen manufacture a carefully chosen range of furniture by some of the greatest Danish designers for a select audience worldwide.
Furniture maker and architect Ib Kofod-Larsen (1921-2003) was one of the greatest design minds to emerge from mid-century Denmark, and his impact was felt across the world, especially in the United States. Kofod-Larsen, who is known for his exemplary seating, tables and storage solutions, understood that the attention to detail, quality materials and functional design ethos of the Scandinavian modernism style he followed would become part of a major international movement.
