Risom 65 Sofa 2 seater Metal Base

By Jens Risom , 1965

Risom designed the Risom 65 sofa to look elongated and inviting, signalling an instant feeling of expansion, with loose seat and back cushions that fit neatly into the concept. The subtle, recessed base in steel makes the sofa appear almost as if it’s floating just above the floor. Boasting an unadorned simplicity achieved with architectural precision, the sofa’s pure lines, geometric shapes and streamlined expression are stripped of ornamentation.

About The Collection

The Risom 65 Sofa personifies the designer’s belief that “comfort vs. function in furniture can be quickly resolved. A well-designed sofa settles the question in one sitting.”

Risom designed the 65 Sofa to look elongated and inviting, signalling an instant feeling of expansion, with loose seat and back cushions that fit neatly into the concept. The subtle, recessed base in steel or solid wood makes the sofa appear almost as if it’s floating just above the floor.

Boasting an unadorned simplicity achieved with architectural precision, the sofa’s pure lines, geometric shapes and streamlined expression are stripped of ornamentation.

Even though the Risom 65 Sofa was originally designed in 1965, its appeal is irrefutably timeless. Easy to envision in any contemporary setting, anywhere in the world.

Jens Risom

Designer

“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.
