Description

Running into legendary designer Jens Risom in the halls at DWR headquarters is but one of the many pleasures of working here. Over the last several years, we’ve collaborated with Risom on a number of new product launches and re-launches like this Chair (1949), originally designed for the Caribe Hilton Hotel in Puerto Rico. Decades have passed since this collection was in production, and Risom worked closely with us on every step of its return, from reviewing prototypes, to adjusting tiny details, to advocating cost-effective changes in the manufacturing process. Like all of the furniture by this iconic designer, this collection has a subtle Scandinavian sensibility that works with modern and traditional settings. Or, as Risom puts it, “Good design means that anything good will go well with other equally good things.” Slipcovers are removable for cleaning. Made in U.S.A.
