Yatzer has a comprehensive report on the current exhibition at Rocket Gallery, Jens Risom Furniture. The exhibition explores the career of the famed Danish designer, noted for being among the first to translate Scandinavian aesthetics to the American market.
Rocket has collaborated with Benchmark to reissue a selection of Risom’s designs from the 1950s and 1960s. They are wonderfully simple and utilitarian – including some exceptional coffee tables and magazine racks.
