Magazine Table

Designed by Jens Risom - Fredericia

Jens Risom (1916 - 2016) was a key figure who contributed to the Danish Modernism movement, considered the first designer to introduce a Scandinavian sense of aesthetics and focus on functionalism to America. After studying design at the Copenhagen School of Industrial Arts and Design, Risom trained under Kaare Klint, who led the furniture school at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. An opportunity Risom shared alongside fellow icons-in-the-making Hans J. Wegner and Børge Mogensen.

Jens Risom joins Fredericia’s stable of talented designers together with his former classmates, Hans J. Wegner and Børge Mogensen, whose work laid the foundation for Fredericia.

Description

Originally designed in 1949, The Magazine Table reflects Risom’s idea that key to good design is comfort, the warmth of wood with a graceful style. Available in lacquered or black lacquered oak plywood, the mix of soft lines and carefully crafted cut-outs and curves makes this the perfect place for any reading material - in any number of contemporary settings. From private homes to reception areas, lobbies or hotel rooms.
