The Risom Lounge Chair was originally designed by Jens Risom and has been recently reissued by Stellar Works. The distinctive mid-century style of the lounge chair, with its focus on simplicity and functionality, marks it out as a true modern classic. This generously proportioned armchair has a robust solid wood frame, stylishly angled seat back with 3 tufted buttons. The Risom Lounge Chair is a timeless classic which works well in living rooms at home and in public spaces such as reception areas and hotel rooms.

The Risom Lounge Chair comes in a solid oak or walnut frame with its seat and backrest upholstered. Please make your selection of wood finish and upholstery category in the Wood Finishes and Upholstery options above, indicating the upholstery reference in the "Note to Do Shop" section at the checkout. Please contact us if you have any further questions on options and finishes.

The Risom Collection comprises two chairs, a lounge chair, a desk and some shelves. The collection is most famous for the cane back Risom Chair 140, which was used in the White House in the 1960s, with President Lyndon B. Johnson photographed sitting on it whilst he signed the Civil Rights Act in 1964.

Jens Risom, who designed the first Knoll chair in 1941, received his education in Denmark at the Krebs' School, St. Anne Vester School, University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen's Kunståndvaerkerskolen. He worked as a designer of furniture and interiors in the Copenhagen office of architect Ernst Kuhn.
