Jen Risom DWR film

Very cool video, interviewing Jens Risom (Danish American furniture designer, who first introduced Scandinavian design to the United States, famous for his brilliant mid-Century modern designs and use of parachute straps). In DWR film he discusses his work and other designer greats like Hans Knoll, George Nelson, Edward Wormley, Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia and Charles Eames.

"A design philosophy has to do with the curvature of the design, where does it go, what room does it live in and what can you use with it." Classic.
