Recently moved and decided this accent furniture item doesn’t work in the new home so I’m offering here for sale:
Design Within Reach Jens Risom Stool: The Risom Stool (1943), by Danish designer Jens Risom, is testament to the simplicity and ingenuity that is so often found in timeless modern designs. One of the first designs commissioned by Knoll®, it brought the natural materials and understated form of Scandinavian design to large-scale U.S. production. Originally constructed of a birch frame and surplus parachute straps, the stool made the best of the few materials available during WWII. Today, the streamlined hardwood frame is expertly joined with mortise and tenon construction, and the heavy-duty cotton straps are tightly basket-woven across the frame for strength and resilience. Greenguard® certified for sustainable materials and manufacturing. Each piece is stamped with the KnollStudio logo and the designer’s signature. Manufactured by Knoll according to the original and exacting specifications of the designer. Made in U.S.A. Dimensions: H 17.25" W 16.5" D 15.25". This is the “walnut/khaki” option. Excellent condition.
Price: This is listed on DWR for $407. I’m offering to sell it for $125.
