Custom Jens Risom Knoll 56 in Oval Walnut Dining Cafe Table Saarinen Tulip
Listed for sale are original early 2000's custom ordered Jens Risom walnut dining / cafe tables. The tables were produced by Knoll International and are in very nice condition.
The price listed is for one table. Multiple tables are available.
These tables were ordered by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill Architects (SOM) for the Pritzker family's Hyatt Headquarters during a large-scale redesign 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 derived somewhat from the Florence Knoll and Saarinen tables.
Another larger 78 inch 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 56.5 x 33.5 x 28.25 inches.
