Strap Chair (Jens Risom)

I was watching American Pickers while working on Patrick’s Library project and they mentioned a Knoll Strap chair.  I had seen a similar concept from Phillips at the Phillips High Point Furniture Market so I had to check it out.  Seems that Jens Risom made a Lounge chair similar in concept to the old folding chairs but out of wood and more stable strap material.  Woven interlocking pattern of solid Parachute straps on a Birch frame.  The chair showcased around 1943 and is still produced by Knoll®.
