Fresh Finds: Rare Jens Risom Lazy-Susan Rotating Coffee Table + More

. Sunday, July 25, 2010

By Jens Risom, a rare model designed in 1958.  This ingenious coffee table features solid walnut construction and a lazy-susan revolving top, perfect for entertaining. A knurled and threaded knob hidden on the top of one leg acts as a brake.

The top rotates smoothly on a Seng Chicago ball-bearing swivel, which were also utilized by the Eames on their dowel-swivel based chairs.

A fine modernist armchair featuring a solid walnut frame and floating concave seat panels, upholstered for seating comfort. Aesthetically reminiscent of works by Jens Risom and George Nelson + Associates. Not signed, designer and manufacturer are unknown.

Jens Quistgaard's cast iron candleholders are dynamic sculptural objects, and represent the best of Scandinavian artistry and craftsmanship. This model is called
the Starcluster and features a sculptural ring of teardrop shaped pods.

Many more great finds to come.

All via Modern Love.
