by on Jan 28, 2010

Do you recognize any of these men? Here’s a hint: Curbly pays homage to three of them in Make It! Mid-Century Modern. Here’s another hint: Take note of the objects they’re sitting in/photographed next to. From left to right,they are George Nelson, Edward Warmley, Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia, Charles Eames and Jens Rison. They were photographed together for a July 1961 Playboy article that can be read in its entirety aRuksLiving. It’s definitely worth the read.

    His name is Jens Risom… not Rison… just in case you want to correct this. I have a Risom couch, so the last name with an “n” stood out to me… otherwise, I might not have noticed.
