Designer/architect Jens Risom was born and raised in Denmark. In 1939 he came to the US and in 1941 designed the 1st collection that was manufactured by Knoll. The collection included the Lounge Chair, an iconic Scandinavian silhouette which is still a Knoll classic. It is available in 6 colors, with or without arms, in maple or walnut, and with cotton or nylon webbing.
