Risom Child's Side Chair by Knoll
designed by Jens Risom
The Risom Child's Side Chair brings a Scandinavian sensibility to American furniture. Introduced in 1941, the Risom Child's Side Chair was a seismic change in the American design landscape, and helped establish America as the post-war leader in modern design. That first Risom Child's Side Chair was part of a whole line of chairs manufactured and distributed by Knoll, the only company authorized to deal with the Risom Child's Side Chair.
The Risom Child's Side Chair is a stylish wood fame, angled attractively, wrapped and woven in strips of fabric. Originally Risom used parachute strips, due to war time restrictions on materials. Today you can get the Risom Child's Side Chair in any color and style you want.
Born in Denmark, Jens Risom helped establish America as the center of the furniture design world. His creations, including the Risom Child's Side Chair, married a Scandinavian aesthetic and an American sensibility to create some of the most beautiful and lasting furniture this century.

About The Manufacturer
|Jens Risom, born in Copenhagen, was greatly influenced by his father, Sven Risom, who was a renowned architect that encouraged his son to learn the business of architecture and design. Risom moved to the United States at the age of 23 and became the design director for Dan Cooper in New York. In 1941, Risom designed the very first chair for Knoll. Today Knoll sells several of Risom's designs, including the Risom dining and low tables, Risom lounge chair, and Risom side chairs. At the age of 90, Risom is still designing new pieces for architects around the world.|
