Knoll ® Risom Amoeba Table

Back in 1941, Danish designer Jens Risom created the Amoeba Table exclusively for Knoll. Today, the Amoeba Table's unique and modern design is just as relevant as ever. Working a lot with wood, Risom's signature style clearly comes through in this fun and modern coffee table. The Design Part of a larger collection designed in 1941, the Risom Amoeba Table incorporates a natural aesthetic characteristic of understated Scandinavian design. The Amoeba Table displays the same sturdy, straightforward construction and organic shapes that embody Risom's distinctive style. One of the first pieces commissioned by Knoll, this table is suitable for almost any decor. The fun free form shape of the tabletop will show off your contemporary design sensibilities, while making quite a statement in your living room, office or den.

About the Designer

Jens Risom

Jens Risom  

Jens Risom b. Denmark, 1916 The first true Knoll designer, Jens Risom joined the young Hans Knoll Furniture Company in the early 1940s as the sole designer of interiors and furniture. Born in Denmark to the well-known architect Sven Risom, Jens worked in Stockholm for one year before graduating from the prestigious Kundstandvaerkerskolen in Copenhagen. Risom left Denmark for the United States in 1938 and, for two years, served as Director of Interior Design at the studio of Dan Cooper, Inc. in New York before starting a freelance career specializing in furniture and textiles. It was during this time that he met Hans Knoll. The pair collaborated on an exhibition for the New York World's Fair. Knoll asked Risom, who had been searching for a promoter and manufacturer, to help him design interiors for clients around New York. With Hans handling client relations and Jens planning interiors and designing furniture when needed, the pair began to take on more design projects. In 1942 they printed the first Knoll Catalog, which included 15 pieces designed by Risom — the very first furniture to be commissioned specifically by Knoll. Working ingeniously within the constraints of wartime material shortages, Risom developed several chairs and tables using essentially scraps of wood and rejected nylon straps from parachute production. Despite these constraints, Risom was able to design innovative and truly modern pieces of furniture, a selection of which were reintroduced by Knoll in 1994. In 1943, Risom left Knoll to join the U.S. Army. He returned to the United States in 1946 to launch his own design firm Jens Risom Design, which he ran until the early 1970s. After selling his company, Risom relocated to Connecticut and started a design consultancy firm. He is a trustee of the Rhode Island School of Design and was knighted by Queen Margrethe of Denmark in 1996.

Love this beautiful coffee table

 from Boston, MA– Verified Buyer– Top 50 Reviewer

The Risom Amoeba table is really beautiful. I have it in a casual living room in walnut. I have the matching Risom round side table also in the same room. The walnut is beautiful and the shape of the table is a real conversation piece. Wonderful!
