One of the first designers to introduce Scandinavian design in the United States, Danish-born Jens Risom was part of a new vanguard that helped establish post-war America’s leadership role in the world of modern furniture design. Early in his career, his collaboration with Hans Knoll was interrupted when Risom was drafted into World World II in 1943. Returning from the war, Risom started his own firm, Jens Risom Design, which he led for the next 25 years. You’ll find a collection of Jen’s pieces below. Jens recently turned 100!
