Description: A4 Print of a design drawing by Danish Designer, Ib Kofod-Larsen of: Secret compartment for writing desk. Drawing No. 299. ref: GBX09, G-Plan Boxed I.K.L. Design Drawings 1961 -1974.
Notes: This drawing was an additional feature to an earlier design of a desk. (ref: GBX09_03). HWFA holds approx. 396 design drawings by Ib Kofod-Larsen, produced for G-Plan between 1961 - 1974; many of which incorporate rough amendment sketches and written notes. Very few of the designs were ever put into production. To date, our research has shown this was not a production piece. According to Leslie Dandy, IKL was contracted at £2000 a year, without royalties, to produce designs exclusively for G-Plan; with the Company retaining full copyright. Leslie Dandy also says, IKL's designs were not generally successful - being too expensive to produce and the style and proportions not suiting the British taste and home. ref: HWFA Research Material, Oliver Heal, 02.08.2007 'Notes of a Conversation with Leslie Dandy' unpublished.
