Defined by its triangular profile and distinctive cut-outs for resting the elbows when reading (or, of course, knitting), Ib Kofod-Larsen’s masterful lounge chair adds a plush sheepskin-seat version of this long sought-after collector’s item. Given its unexpected, sculptural form and deeply enveloping comfort, Knitting Chair has a relatively small footprint, which makes it an easy fit in compact interiors as well as in more spacious ones. Menu’s timely reissue honors the designer’s heritage of superb woodcraft and elevated natural materials for an unforgettable, conversation-sparking silhouette.

From lighting and furniture, tabletop to bath, the wide offerings of Menu speaks to this Copenhagen-based company’s guiding quest for functional originality. “It’s about creating aesthetically pleasing designs that evoke true feelings as well as improving processes in people’s daily lives,” says Menu founder Bjarne Hansen. This is also reflected in its stable of influential creatives including Norm Architects, Afteroom Studio, Jonas Wagell and Krøyer-Sætter-Lassen among others standouts.
Menu is just as dedicated to responsible manufacturing as innovation. Working to locate new partners in developing countries around the world, the company searches out local factories or small private co-operations to turn out high quality goods and also provide a better economic foundation for the people involved in that production.
