The Risom Desk was originally designed by Jens Risom and has been recently reissued by Stellar Works. The distinctive mid-century style of the desk, with its focus on simplicity and functionality, marks it out as a true modern classic. This compact desk has sleek tapered legs and a suspended side cabinet with a panel front. The Risom Desk is a timeless classic which works well in studies or living rooms at home and in commercial spaces such as offices and hotel rooms.

The Risom Desk comes with solid oak or walnut wood legs available in various finishes, a large drawer and a veneer laminated top. Please make your selection in the Wood Finishes option above. Please contact us if you have any further questions on options and finishes.

The Risom Collection comprises two chairs, a lounge chair, a desk and some shelves. The collection is most famous for the cane back Risom Chair 140, which was used in the White House in the 1960s, with President Lyndon B. Johnson photographed sitting on it whilst he signed the Civil Rights Act in 1964.

Jens Risom, who designed the first Knoll chair in 1941, received his education in Denmark at the Krebs' School, St. Anne Vester School, University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen's Kunståndvaerkerskolen. He worked as a designer of furniture and interiors in the Copenhagen office of architect Ernst Kuhn.
