Amongst the first pieces of furniture designed for and manufactured by Knoll, Jens Risom's unique chair design was originally constructed of simple maple frames and discarded parachute webbing, with the limitations caused by wartime material restrictions. Timeless, honest furniture design, the Risom collection helped to establish Knoll as an early provider of modern design in the USA, placing them on the path to their place today as one of the world's great furniture producers. A stunning chair design, the Knoll Studio Risom Side Chair is perfect for pairing with a dining table or desk in the modern home. A lounge chair version is also available.
Jens Risom was one of the first furniture designers to bring the traditional Scandinavian values of function and craftsmanship to the United States.
He was part of a new vanguard that helped establish post-war America as a leader in the world of modern furniture design and manufacturing.
