Custom Jens Risom Knoll 78 in Oval Walnut Dining Conference Table
Listed for sale is an original early 2000's custom ordered Jens Risom walnut dining / conference table. The table was produced by Knoll International and is in very nice condition.
The tables were ordered by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Architects (SOM) for the Pritzker family's Hyatt Headquarters during a large-scale re-design of their corporate headquarters in Chicago.
When purchasing these tables, I reached out to a historian at Knoll to ask about the history of the tables. They were part of the "Knoll Planning Unit" design series, which can be noted by the design of these sculpted legs. Photos are attached. In short, the design makes use of four sculpted legs adopted from the Planning Unit (a design from the late 50's/early 60's) with a top designed and dimensioned identically to the Florence Knoll oval 78 inch tables and Saarinen oval tulip tables. Another smaller version is also available.
The legs are in excellent condition with some light wear. The tops also have some wear noted with some light marks and scratches from use. To be absolutely perfect again, they'd just need a freshening up with oil. I can have this professionally done at your request (with added time allowed and minimal added cost).
The tables measure 78 x 48 x 28.25 inches.
Chairs and other furniture are not included. Only the table is included in the sale.
