A-Chair Metal Base

Jens Risom

Originally designed by Jens Risom in 1961 the A-Chair is a graceful expression of an elegant, upholstered chair in a timeless design, boasting an A-frame in the back for added support and as signature detail. The curved lines of the two-piece back and loose seat cushion accentuate the comfort and softness of this foam-filled chair with a base available in solid oak, walnut, black lacquered steel or matt chrome.

Jens Risom


“Good design means that anything good will go well with other equally good things.”

Jens Risom was a true talent and a pivotal player in the Danish Modernism movement, expecially his role introducing a Scandinavian sensibility to the American market. There he pursued a successful career designing an array of pieces which stemmed from functionality, imbued with a New York sense of style and savoir-faire. Risom went on to influence the global design arena and left a legacy of stunning, streamlined designs.

A strong proponent of the idea that design should be modest, minimal and not centre stage, Risom’s understated approach to elegance is seen in his preference for gentle curves, geometric angles, clever construction and affinity for continuity.
