The Risom Collection of chairs and tables, designed in 1943 and characterized by the use of cost-effective wartime materials, has since been used for every application imaginable, from the home to the workplace. Knoll expands Jens Risom's classic designs with new bar and counter height stools, including a teak version apt for outdoor use. Described as good, honest furniture design, the Risom Collection helped establish Knoll as an early pioneer of Modernism in America.

Danish-born Jens Risom received his education in Denmark. He later worked as a designer of furniture and interiors in the Copenhagen office of architect Ernst Kuhn. After immigrating to the United States in 1939, he designed Knoll's first commissioned collection, including a range of simple birchwood chairs in 1941. After World War II, he founded his own company and was among the first to manufacture furniture consisting of interchangeable standard components. Responsible for designs dating to the mid-20th century, Risom is a trustee of the Rhode Island School of Design and was knighted by Queen Margrethe of Denmark in 1996.
