Description

Jens Risom is considered one of the great modernist designers of the mid 20th Century. He trained under the highly influential Danish architect and father of Danish modernism Kaare Klint, he was also classmates with Hans Wegner. Shortly before the German invasion of Denmark in 1940, Risom emigrated to the United States. On arrival, he was surprised by the lack of modern furniture available in the American market.

A chance meeting with Hans Knoll, founder of Knoll Furniture, lead to the production of groundbreaking modern designs by Risom that defined the era and have influenced generations of designers since. Risom's work is known for its clean lines and simple shaker style aesthetic. This biomorphic coffee table, designed in 1946, is grand enough to capture your attention and warm enough to fall in love with.
