Risom Arm Lounge Chair

Designed by Jens Risom for Knoll®
Originally constructed of a birch frame and surplus parachute straps, Jens Risom’s iconic Lounge Chair (1943) made the best of the few materials available during WWII. Born in Copenhagen in 1916 and emigrated to the U.S. in 1939, Jens Risom made Danish modernism an important part of U.S. design. In 1941, he joined forces with fellow Danish émigré Hans Knoll, who soon launched his famous company with 20 pieces of furniture, 15 of which were designed by Risom. Many of these items, including the Risom Lounge Chair, are still produced by Knoll® today. After returning from WWII service, he started Jens Risom Design, Inc., where he designed, manufactured and sold furniture. Even today, Risom continues to create work that is simple, practical and beautiful. Manufactured by Knoll® according to the original specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A.

  • This fully licensed classic by Jens Risom was one of the first chairs manufactured by Knoll®.
  • Each piece is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and the designer's signature.
  • The streamlined hardwood frame is expertly joined with mortise and tenon construction.
  • A deep seat pocket, tall backrest and armrests allow for comfortable and supportive reclining.
  • In the place of bulky cushions are heavy-duty cotton straps, which are tightly basket-woven across the frame for strength and resilience.
