Jens Risom

Perfectly marrying Danish and American ideals, Jens Risom Furniture is evocative of its maker. Born in Denmark, Risom moved to American in 1939. Following a chance meeting with Hans Knoll in 1941, he produced his first collection for Knoll. His famed piece for that line—a lounger constructed of parachute straps—showcases the ideals that came to define all Jens Risom pieces: an aerodynamic, laid-back form that is purely Danish, combined with a right angle simplicity that is distinctively reminiscent of American designers like Edward Wormley and Paul McCobb.
