Risom C140 Chair

Designed by  Jens Risom for Stellar Works

Jens Risom's midcentury seating has been dubbed the "Playboy Armchair"—taking its name from a 1961 magazine layout of the design icon among his then-peers. Stellar Works is reissuing C140 with its original caned backrest as well the upholstered-back variant C142. In ash or walnut, the chair is sheathed in a Kvadrat textile by midcentury Danish designer Nanna Ditzel. Emblematic of the era, Jens' C140 has even been noted in White House photographs of President Lyndon B. Johnson signing the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
