Clean lines and discrete curves. Available in an array of sizes, intrinsic to the Calmo concept is the choice of a chaise longue to incorporate at either end. A comfy chair or ottoman or both for a more expansive sofa setting. Not to mention several loose, 100% down filled cushions for extra comfort. All kinds of elements and components that you can easily configure together to create a cosy atmosphere that’s contemporary yet timeless. Add to that a wide variety of textiles, along with the option of solid wood or steel legs, and you have an incredible amount of freedom to mix or match any number of projects for any type of private residence.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Fredericia sofa without their immaculate craftsmanship. It’s everywhere you look, from the construction of Calmo to the details, exclusive materials and promise of lasting comfort.
Calmo is more than a sofa. It’s a contemporary take on living driven by the desire to design your own idea of a home. Elegant, unassuming and exquisitely crafted. By designer Hugo Passos.
“I see this collection as a contemporary update of Børge Mogensen's ethos - to produce functional, long lasting furniture for everyday life. I am very happy that we have created a relaxed, strong yet elegant sofa family that I hope people enjoy.”
And then a classic brought back to life: Jens Risom was part of the golden generation of designers during the Danish Modernism movement. Risom introduced Scandinavian design to America and went on to influence the global design scene. Drawing on a Nordic focus on functionality and materials, Risom added a New York sense of confidence and style to his designs.
Jens Risom joins Fredericia’s stable of talented designers together with his former classmates, Hans J. Wegner and Børge Mogensen, whose work laid the foundation for Fredericia.
Risom made a name for himself in New York with with elegant, unadorned furniture for residential and commercial spaces. Reflecting Denmark’s passion for craftsmanship and preference for simple, sensible and functional designs.
Design is not just visual; it needs to be used and the different conditions of use determine a lot of the design.
Several of Risom’s pieces are considered modern classics, seen in leading design museums such as New York’s Museum of Modern Art / MoMa and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, amongst others.
We’re pleased to keep Risom’s legacy alive with the launch of three unique designs equally suitable for any modern-day private residence, hotel, restaurant or lounge.
The Risom Magazine Table from 1949.
Sweeping diagonal lines with cut-outs and curves echo Risom’s penchant for practicality. It appeared in the first comprehensive catalogue from Jens Risom Design with the slogan “Furniture with a signature”.
