Name That Mid-Century Modern Designer

Modern Decor

We love today’s mystery Mid-Century Modern Designer for a lot of reasons. The simple and curvy designs reflect a transition between traditional furniture pieces and sleeker modern pieces, and we love that natural elements and plush materials are incorporated. Need more clues? You got it:

  • Had the distinction of designing one of the first chairs to be manufactured by Knoll.
  • His most iconic furniture piece is constructed of a birch frame and surplus parachute straps.
  • Born in Copenhagen, Denmark on May 8, 1916.

Can you guess who this Mid-Century Modern Designer is?

    It’s Jens Risom. I’d never seen that bench before though. That’s nice.
