RARE "SHAMROCK" OAK AND ALUMINUM EXECUTIVE DESK BY JENS RISOM
With polished chrome shamrock legs; circa 1960s; also works well as a small dining table
Item # 802PVK24S
An incredibly interesting and very finely crafted executive desk designed by Jens Risom circa the late 1960s, it is notable for its beautiful metal work. The brilliant grain of the oak veneered top is showcasedrecessed into the brushed metal frame, these coming together with a perfect joint against the inset shamrock legs. It works beautifully as both an executive desk or as a smaller dining table. Risom designed several more complete executive desks in this "Shamrock" line, but this example is particularly interesting for its austerity and overall simplicity of lines throughout.
Measurements: 72 1/4” W x 37 1/4” D x 28 1/2” H
A few spots of ding and surface flaws to the oak; numerous scuffs to polished legs and apron; sturdy and very strong.
