The first-ever monograph on the life and work of celebrated Danish-American mid-century furniture designer Jens Risom

The first authoritative biography on a key figure in mid-century modern design: Jens Risom, who was one of the first designers to introduce Scandinavian design to the United States. In 1942 Risom’s designs formed the majority of the inaugural collection of original furniture for the iconic Hans Knoll Furniture Company. Organised chronologically, the book covers Risom’s education in Denmark, early collaborations with Georg Jensen and Hans Knoll, the creation of his own company – Jen Risom Design – his celebrated prefab house on Block Island, RI, as well as his legacy and presence in the 21st century.
