Risom Lounge Chair by Knoll

Originally designed in 1941 by Danish designer Jens Risom, the Risom Lounge Chair is now being released by Knoll. Knoll is mostly known for their office furniture (see previous post), but this casual chair has a Scandinavian sensibility, being built with a streamlined maple frame joined with mortise and tenon construction. In the place of bulky cushions are heavy-duty cotton straps, which are tightly basket-woven across the frame. The chair comes with the GREENGUARD certification, which means it meets low VOC emission standards for indoor air quality. Each Risom Lounge is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and the designer’s signature, and priced at $632. :: Design Within Within Reach via Better Living Through Design
