Introducing iconic pieces from Jens Risom.

Fredericia Furniture Fredericia Furniture

A master of mid-century modern.

Jens Risom was part of the golden generation of designers during the Danish Modernism movement. Risom introduced Scandinavian design to America and went on to influence the global design scene. Drawing on a Nordic focus on functionality and materials, Risom added a New York sense of confidence and style to his designs.

Jens Risom joins Fredericia’s stable of talented designers together with his former classmates, Hans J. Wegner and Børge Mogensen, whose work laid the foundation for Fredericia.

Risom made a name for himself in New York with with elegant, unadorned furniture for residential and commercial spaces. Reflecting Denmark’s passion for craftsmanship and preference for simple, sensible and functional designs. Design is not just visual; it needs to be used and the different conditions of use determine a lot of the design.

Several of Risom’s pieces are considered modern classics, seen in leading design museums such as New York’s Museum of Modern Art / MoMa and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, amongst others. We’re pleased to keep Risom’s legacy alive with the launch of three unique designs equally suitable for any modern-day private residence, hotel, restaurant or lounge.

The Magazine Table from 1949.
Sweeping diagonal lines with cut-outs and curves echo Risom’s penchant for practicality. It appeared in the first comprehensive catalogue from Jens Risom Design with the slogan “Furniture with a signature”. Available in lacquered or black lacquered oak.

The Risom Collection will be available from Fredericia as of June 2019.
