Collection by Luke Hopping

What It's Like to Work With 99-Year-Old Design Icon Jens Risom


A new collaboration between Chris Hardy and legendary Danish designer Jens Risom for Design Within Reach is on display now at WantedDesign. The midcentury-inspired Vens (Danish for "friends") storage collection was designed primarily by Hardy, yet bears the indelible mark of the old master. Hardy discusses how he approached the daunting task of designing on Risom's behalf.
