Running into legendary designer Jens Risom in the halls at DWR headquarters is but one of the pleasures of working here. We recently collaborated with him to bring the Risom Desk (2012) – “the little one,” as he calls it – back into production in North America. Originally designed in 1968 for his own home in New Canaan, Conn., this small-space solution “is really a writing surface,” says Risom. “Let’s just call it a ‘desk’ in quotations.” Crafted of solid American walnut or oak and rich black or chocolate leather, “it’s a handsome piece of decoration at which you sit, at which you study, at which you read books … if people do that any more.” The drawer interior has a removable solid wooden tray for desk supplies. Ships fully assembled. Made in U.S.A.
Materials: Solid North American walnut or oak; black or chocolate leather with Crypton® protective finish.
