Born in Copenhagen in 1916 and emigrated to the U.S. in 1939, Jens Risom made Danish modernism an important part of U.S. design. In 1941, he joined forces with fellow Danish émigré Hans Knoll, who soon launched his famous company with 20 pieces of furniture, 15 of which were designed by Risom. Many of these items, including the Risom Lounge Chair, are still produced by Knoll today.
