Jens Risom

Danish-born Jens Risom (b. 1916) 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 Hans Knoll's first commissioned collection, including a range of simple birchwood chairs. He then teamed with entrepreneur to launch the Hans Knoll Furniture Company in 1942, with 15 of the 20 pieces in the inaugural "600" line designed by Risom. He has been cited as one of the first to introduce Scandinavian design to the United States. After World War II, he founded his own company and was among the first to manufacture furniture consisting of interchangeable standard components.
Hans Knoll, the son of a pioneer German furniture manufacturer, founded the Knoll company in New York City in 1938, one year after immigrating from Germany. He hired Florence Schust, a Cranbrook graduate who had worked for Gropius and Breuer, and the two were married in 1946. The next year, they opened a textiles division and showroom that was flanked with some of the worlds leading designers. Knoll would triumph thanks to impressive international contacts, gaining exclusive rights to the works of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and producing them to their original specifications. This included the 1929 Barcelona Chair. They also commissioned Eero Saarinen to design the now iconic Tulip chair, and hold the rights to Marcel Breuer's seminal Wassily Chair. Artists such as Harry Bertoia, Jens Risom, and Isamu Noguchi would also collaborate with Knoll.
