Designed by Jens Risom in 1943, as part of the original collection for Knoll, this chair incorporates a natural aesthetic characteristic of understated Scandinavian design.  Jens Risom joined the Hans Knoll Furniture Company in the early 1940s as the sole designer of interiors and furniture. Working ingeniously within the constraints of wartime material shortages, Risom designed his eponymous collection of chairs and tables using essentially scraps of wood and rejected nylon straps from parachute production.  Available in red, black or flax coloured cotton webbing.
