description

A pair of lounge chairs designed by Jens Risom in 1941. Jens Risom's designs were the first pieces conceived for and manufactured by Knoll in the USA. Due to wartime material restrictions, the lounge chair was originally constructed of simple maple frames and discarded parachute webbing. Described as good, honest furniture design, the collection helped establish Knoll as an early source of modern design in America. This pair feature beige webbing.
