Jens Risom Jens Risom emigrated from Europe to the U.S. when he was just 23 years of age. Like other Scandinavian designers such as Josef Frank and Kaare Klint, Risom continued to honor tradition in modern design, combining old and new in highly original ways. Jens Risom`s career has spanned nearly sixty years. He began his study of design in the Copehagen workshop of Kaare Klint in 1935 and joined Ernst Kuhn`s architectural office in 1938, where he designed furniture and interiors. In 1939, Risom emigrated to the U.S. and in 1941 designed the first chair manufactured by Knoll. Risom described the chair as "very basic, very simple, inexpensive, easy to make." The chair was constructed with a birch wood frame and, because of wartime materials constraints, cheap but strong army surplus webbing and has inspired countless imitations. Risom continued to create simple, well-crafted modern furniture with Knoll and George Jensen, but established his own design studio, Jens Risom Design, in 1946. The studio was acquired by Dictaphone in 1970 and in 1973, Risom became chief executive of Design Control, a Connecticut based design consultancy. In the 1970`s, he acted as a trustee of the Rhode Island School of design. Now in his eighties, Jens Risom continues to be active and his work continues to reflect the Danish approach to modernism, with its emphasis on traditional values and the human need for warmth, beauty and simplicity. Modern American design owes much to his unfailing sense of proportion, commitment to practicality and insight into the forms of modern living.

Most of our pieces are vintage (30+ year old) furniture. Condition will vary. A little bruising on chair and table legs is normal wear for furniture of that age. We will point out more-than-normal bruising on a piece, however.
Metro Retro uses the following condition ratings:
Mint: The piece looks like it came right off a showroom floor. Original finish, with original luster and no wear or flaking. There are no nicks, gouges, or scratches.
Excellent: Nearly perfect with minor blemishes. Piece may be refinished. We will note if the piece has been refinished or needs reupholstering.
Very Good: Showing some signs of age. Superficial surface scratches and blemishes are more visible than if in excellent condition. Finish may have minor flaking but the piece is otherwise acceptable. Cleaning or polishing will improve appearance.
Good: Definite signs of age and use. Visible scratches and stains but piece will be usable without being refinished. May need repairs.
Poor: Major signs of age and wear. Will need to be refinished and/or repaired.
