"Good design means that anything good will go well with other equally good things." -Jens Risom

Originally designed by Jens Risom in 1961 the A-Chair is a graceful expression of an elegant, upholstered chair in a timeless design, boasting an A-frame in the back for added support and as signature detail. The graceful lines of the two-piece back and loose seat cushion accentuate the comfort and softness of this foam-filled chair with a base available in black lacquered steel or matte chrome. An appealing addition for any modern-day private residence, hotel, corporate lobby, reception area, club, cocktail bar or restaurant.

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.

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.
