Risom C142 Chair

Designed for

This streamlined chair is a variant on Jens Risom's midcentury icon C140, replacing that model's caned back with upholstered cushioning. The style is informally known as the "Playboy Armchair" from a 1961 magazine layout with Jens and his peers of the era. In reissuing the seating, Stellar Works is offering versions in either ash or walnut and upholstered in Kvadrat's fabric Hallingdal 65. That textile, also designed by a renowned midcentury Danish designer, Nanna Ditzel, comes in a choice of bold colors to complement the sleek wood frame.
