The Rocket Gallery in London is home to the first-ever UK exhibition of mid-century furniture by Danish-born designer Jens Risom.

The designs on display date from between 1941 and 1971, all imported specifically for the exhibition and all being offered for sale when the show ends. And there are some real classics to choose from, with Risom responsible for much of Knoll’s early output before setting up his own company, producing a range of pieces that are sought-after by collectors and housed in museums around the world.

The piece pictured above is the Knoll 652w armchair, a design that dates back to 1941 and a chair that was produced before 1951. If you want it, you can buy it for £850. See the website for a more designs and prices.
