Just in time for the 2018 outdoor season, Knoll has released the Knoll Risom Outdoor Collection, a suite of classic modern furniture designs by Danish master Jens Risom, updated with materials appropriate for outdoor settings. First introduced in 1953, the Risom line was the first modern furniture suite commissioned by Knoll, making Jens Risom the company's original design star. The Risom Outdoor Collection arrives on the 75th anniversary of that seminal moment in Knoll's history.
Five modern outdoor pieces comprise the Risom Outdoor Collection: lounge chair and ottoman, Risom Outdoor Side chair, and two outdoor side tables. The collection is visually identical to its indoor counterparts, with the signature cotton and nylon webbing of the original chairs replaced by Sunbrella® webbing, a material boasting UV, fade resistant and water repellent qualities. A choice of 6 webbing colors ensures that the chairs complement a range of outdoor design schemes. Solid teak with an oiled finish replaces the maple and walnut frames and tables of the original Risom collection.
