Effortlessly aligning with Risom's legacy of streamlined Scandinavian designs, the A-Chair - Metal Base embodies a graceful expression with utmost comfort. Well-tailored with a clear sense of balance, the characteristic angle is echoed in multiple details, including the back, arms and supporting frame. Initially conceived in 1961, the modern iteration of the piece is upholstered in the gentle fabric finish of Kvadrat Vidar 4, a tightly woven material that bolsters the inviting qualities of the A-Chair. Also available with a Wooden Base that boasts a more natural aesthetic, the chair remains conscious of proportions and angles, cradling the seater and adding further comfort with the removable cushion.
Jens Risom was one of the first furniture designers to bring the traditional Scandinavian values of function and craftsmanship to the United States.
He was part of a new vanguard that helped establish post-war America as a leader in the world of modern furniture design and manufacturing.
