The Risom Shelves were originally designed by Jens Risom and have been recently reissued by Stellar Works. The distinctive mid-century style of the freestanding shelving unit, with its focus on simplicity and functionality, marks it out as a true modern classic. This compact bookcase combines 4 open shelves with two drawer compartments, the latter featuring cut-out drawer fronts, which gives the bookcase a sense of lightness. The Risom Shelves is a timeless classic which works well in living rooms or studies at home and in commercial spaces such as offices, lobbies, receptions and other communal lounging areas.
The Risom Shelves comes with a solid oak or walnut wood structure with veneer panels. For all the wood options, please refer to the fabrics and finishes guide for more information. Please make your selection of Wood Finish in the options above. below. Please contact us if you have any further questions on finishes.
The Risom Collection comprises four chairs, a lounge chair, a coffee table, 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.
