Born in Denmark in 1916, Jens Risom, son of the famous architect Sven Risom, is considered to be the first designer to have brought the Scandinavian style to the United States in the 1940s.

After studying at the prestigious Copenhagen School of Industrial Arts and Design, where he was classmates with Hans Wegner and Borge Mogensen, he emigrated to the US. His meeting with Hans Knoll in New York was a turning point in his career; together they introduced a collection which included the famous Risom Lounge Chair. This collection quickly became popular and Jens Risom extended his collection with Florence Knoll before creating his own company: Jens Risom Design.

The Risom style is instantly recognisable; his chairs have original and comfortable strict geometric structures with a timeless look. Diiiz offers a reproduction of the Jen Risom Knoll chair with its black or white stripes.
