Originally designed in 1949, The Magazine Table reflects Risom’s idea that key to good design is comfort, the warmth of wood with a graceful style. Available in lacquered or black lacquered oak plywood, the mix of soft lines and carefully crafted cut-outs and curves makes this the perfect place for any reading material - in any number of contemporary settings. From private homes to reception areas, lobbies or hotel rooms.

Jens Risom

Jens Risom was a true talent and a pivotal player in the Danish Modernism movement, expecially his role introducing a Scandinavian sensibility to the American market. There he pursued a successful career designing an array of pieces which stemmed from functionality, imbued with a New York sense of style and savoir-faire. Risom went on to influence the global design arena and left a legacy of stunning, streamlined designs.

A strong proponent of the idea that design should be modest, minimal and not centre stage, Risom’s understated approach to elegance is seen in his preference for gentle curves, geometric angles, clever construction and affinity for continuity.


Since its foundation in 1911, the family-owned company Fredericia has built up a strong tradition of beautiful craftsmanship and innovative design, developed in close collaboration with a carefully chosen circle of internationally recognised designers.
