A visit with Hlynur
Atlason in his New
York City studio
Hlynur Atlason, born and raised in Iceland, now lives and works in New York City, where we recently visited his SoHo studio to learn more about his design process for the new Rísa Recliner, designed exclusively for DWR.
Atlason has a great talent for looking at furniture forms afresh and reinventing them by paring down excess, introducing soft curves, and making them at once more modern and more inviting, as he’s done with our best-selling Lína Swivel Chair (and new Lína Sofa) and the Vala Swivel Recliner.
