Design Jens Risom, 1965
Wood, steel, foam, upholstery
Made in Denmark by Fredericia

Originally designed by Jens Risom in 1965, the Risom 65 Sofa boasts streamlined architectural lines in an elegant expression that's clean and uncluttered. Adding to the comfort are plush, loose seat and back cushions that fit neatly into the concept to create a singular entity that's simple yet striking. Cushion covers in fabric are reversible, whereas leather covers have a fabric panel partially covering the bottom surface for proper ventilation. The recessed base, available in steel or solid wood, gives the sofa a floating appearance. It's all part of a practical approach to a sofa that signals sophistication.

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.

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

Danish-born Jens Risom (b. 1916) received his education in Denmark. He later worked as a designer of furniture and interiors in the Copenhagen office of architect Ernst Kuhn. After immigrating to the United States in 1939, he designed Hans Knoll's first commissioned collection, including a range of simple birchwood chairs. He then teamed with entrepreneur to launch the Hans Knoll Furniture Company in 1942, with 15 of the 20 pieces in the inaugural "600" line designed by Risom. He has been cited as one of the first to introduce Scandinavian design to the United States. After World War II, he founded his own company and was among the first to manufacture furniture consisting of interchangeable standard components.
Fredericia Furniture began as a thoroughly Danish design house, born of a proud heritage. A heritage of unfaltering dedication to the perfection and progression of the design craft. Simple principles guide us along in our ambition to create and deliver a collection that we believe will be the modern originals of tomorrow. Simple principles that honour outstanding quality through a careful selection of materials, functionality and attention to detail.
