Jens Risom Lounge Chair
June 29th, 2009 · No Comments
After returning from Denmark, I couldn’t help but scour the local stores for Danish design. Luckily, I wound up finding this fantastic lounge chair for an unbelievably low price. Designed in 1941 by Jens Risom, it was part of the first collection of furniture commissioned by the now famous Knoll company. Manufactured from cotton ribbon and lacquered maple, it reminds me a of a mix between a lawn chair and the neck of a harp. Like most Danish furniture I love, the chair’s wood is not only superbly constructed but frames the chair with a sort of grace and natural shape.
