Danish-American furniture designer Jens Risom was one of the first to introduce a Scandinavian sense of aesthetics to America. There he made a name for himself with his stylish approach to timeless, functional designs and focus on natural materials.

He was a key figure who contributed to the Danish Modernism movement, with designs characterised by their quiet confidence, character and understated elegance.

”Good design means that anything good will go well with other equally good things – contemporary or traditional.” - Jens Risom




Sweeping diagonal lines with softened cut-outs and curves echo Jens Risom’s penchant for practicality in this functional magazine table with a striking, sculptural silhouette, ideal for any contemporary setting from hotels to private homes.

An iconic design from 1949 that appeared in the first comprehensive catalogue from Risom with the slogan “Furniture with a signature."
