Classic designs mingle with new additions in the Audo Copenhagen portfolio.

The Icons Collection from Audo Copenhagen showcases a century of expertise in the Danish design tradition of creating clean and effortless objects for living. Featuring designs by Ib Kofod-Larsen, Arnold Madsen, and the legendary Flemming Lassen in addition to newer designers, the collection combines time-honored pieces and contemporary works.  

Inspired by the idea of “soft minimalism,” which blends earth tones and natural materials to create spaces that evoke a calm sense of harmony, Audo Copenhagen’s pieces combine luxe materials with sleek lines, simultaneously showcasing the brand’s Scandinavian roots and modern global outlook. With the Icons Collection, Audo Copenhagen has created a collection that doesn’t ask us to choose between tradition and novelty in our homes, but to embrace interior landscapes that offer the best of the past and present.  

The Penguin Chair

Penguin Dining Chair by Ib Kofod-Larsen for Audo Copenhagen

Originally introduced in 1953, the Penguin dining chair has become a beloved fixture of Scandinavian design. Elegant and sculptural, the chair’s combination of wood, upholstery and sleek metal framing offer visual intrigue while the curved backrest and angled seat provides long-lasting comfort. A classic for a half-century, the Penguin epitomizes the Danish aesthetic where form and function are equally important.

The Tired Man Lounge Chair

The Tired Man Lounge Chair by Flemming Lassen for Audo Copenhagen

Designer Flemming Lassen built his eponymous Tired Man Lounge to leave us feeling “as warm and snug as a polar bear cub in the arms of its mother.” The resulting design quickly became iconic, and has been in production since its 1935 debut at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition. The timeless wingback shape of the chair, plush upholstery and demure wood accents coalesce seamlessly, delivering a design worthy of contemplation. 

Pagode Sofa

Pagode Sofa by Tove & Edvard Kindt-Larsen for Audo Copenhagen

Mirroring the architectural grandeur of classical Asian temples in a sleek sofa, the Pagode Sofa brings a structural silhouette associated with the outdoors inside. Designed by husband and wife duo Tove and Edvard Kindt-Larsen, the Pagode Sofa embodies the Danish design pillars of simplicity and precision. The sofa’s simple yet distinctive armrests and unadorned wooden legs ask us to reconsider which details are “necessary,” and to embrace the beauty of unembellished natural elements like polished wood and fine upholstery.

The Seal Collection

The Seal Lounge Chair by Ib Kofod-Larsen Design for Audo Copenhagen

Characterized by its exact proportions and refined design, The Seal puts comfort at the forefront. Widely considered one of Ib Kofod-Larsen’s best-known pieces, The Seal Lounge Chair invites you to sink into its luxurious leather upholstery and appreciate its perfectly calibrated angles. Combining polished wood with plush leather, the design evokes luxury while delivering lightness into a space by eschewing heavy framing or large cushions. Instead, The Seal presents an open invitation for introspection or conversation in the spaces it occupies.

Oda Lounge Chair

Oda Lounge Chair by Arnold Madsen for Audo Copenhagen

Resembling an upright cradle, the Oda Lounge Chair makes an instant impression with its large, regal backrest. Yet its curvaceous form offers incredible comfort, wrapping you in a cozy seat—proving this lounge chair isn’t meant to function as an art piece alone, but as a functional focal point within active living spaces. The chair’s fluid contours are a signature of Danish designer Arnold Madsen, whose unique curved designs are modern Scandinavian standards.

Radiohus Sofa

Radiohus Sofa by Vilhelm Lauritzen for Audo Copenhagen

Playful, comfortable, and simple, the Radiohaus Sofa marries elements of Mid-Century Modern aesthetics with Danish design principles. Originally created in 1936 for the Danish Broadcasting Corporation’s Radiohuset, the piece is now regarded as one of designer Vilhem Lauritzen’s most important works. A true product of functional architecture for the home, the button pattern gives the sofa depth, inviting you to sit down and stay awhile, while its sleek construction offers beauty and support.

My Own Chair Lounge Chair

My Own Chair Lounge Chair by Flemming Lassen for Audo Copenhagen

This eye-catching lounge chair is cherished for its combination of sculptural elements—like the wingback headrest and legs—and contrasting plush upholstery. Since its inception over 80 years ago by the legendary Danish designer Flemming Lassen, the chair has remained popular for its distinctive silhouette and its curved, supportive backrest which wraps around you offering exceptional support. Lassen himself was said to have these chairs throughout his home until his death. 

Elizabeth Lounge Chair

Elizabeth Lounge Chair by Ib Kofod-Larsen Design for Audo Copenhagen

Named for Queen Elizabeth II, who purchased a set of these chairs during a visit to Copenhagen in 1958, the Elizabeth Lounge Chair offers a well-proportioned and luxurious seat without compromising style. Its low seat and slightly reclined angle show hallmarks of modern Danish design, while its polished wood frame adds luster to the understated and elegant design. 

Defined by natural materials and simple outlines, Audo Copenhagen’s Icons Collection showcases the enduring nature of classic Danish design. Destined to continue outlasting nouveau trends with their ageless combination of form and function, each piece has proved its worthy of the title “icon.”
