Incorporating a natural aesthetic, popular in Scandinavian design, Risom's first commissioned collection for Knoll was a range of simple birchwood chairs. His collection of lounge and side chairs remain some of Knoll's most popular pieces. With cotton webbing over a maple hardwood frame, comfort and style go hand in hand. Risom also designed a collection of coffee, side and dining tables in beautiful maple hardwood?including free form coffee table, the Amoeba.
