Risom Lounge Chair by Knoll
designed by Jens Risom

The Risom Lounge Chair brings a Scandinavian sensibility to American furniture. Introduced in 1941, the Risom Lounge 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 Lounge Chair was part of a whole line of chairs manufactured and distributed by Knoll, the only company authorized to deal with the Risom Lounge Chair.

Overall: 29" h x 23.5" w x 25" d

Maple or walnut hardwood with a clear finish. An ebonized finish with stained maple hardwood is also available. Webbing is available in 100 percent cotton or 60 percent nylon/40 percent cotton blend with water repellent finish.

The Risom Lounge 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 Lounge 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 Lounge Chair, married a Scandinavian aesthetic and an American sensibility to create some of the most beautiful and lasting furniture this century.

Designer

RisomJens 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.
