Stellar Works reissued the C140 in its original caned back version as well the upholstered C142, which has an upholstered back. The chairs come in a choice Walnut. For the upholstery, Stellar works have selected Hallingdal 65 from Kvadrat, designed by mid-century Danish designer iconic Nanna Ditzel, in a choice of 457 (yellow), 547 (orange) 850 (blue).
The Iconic C140 chair was used in the White House under President Lyndon B. Johnson’s administration and Johnson was photographed sitting in it signing the Civil Rights Act in 1964 and the Highway Beautification Act in 1965.
This year, Stellar Works is adding new important pieces to its existing collection of Jens Risom designs. Originating from his mid-century heydays, the six new models are prime examples of Risom´s aesthetics and proof of the enduring quality of his timeless work.
