About The Collection

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.

After making a name for himself in New York, Risom left a legacy of streamlined designs known for their simplicity, uniformity and continuity of style.

The Risom 65 Sofa exemplifies his practical approach in a design that exudes exclusivity, with its bold architectural lines and recessed base that give the sofa a floating appearance. Adding comfort are the loose seat and back cushions, which fit neatly and discretely to create a singular entity that’s simple yet striking.

Fabric covered cushions are reversible, whereas leather covers have a fabric panel partially covering the bottom surface for proper ventilation.

Given its sleek, clean lines and plush, luxurious seating experience, the Risom 65 Sofa can easily be envisioned in any modern-day milieu, from private residences to hotels and restaurants.

The Risom 65 Sofa was originally designed in 1965 and is available from Fredericia as of 2019.

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.
