SOLD 1946 Jens Risom for Knoll Associates 652U Easy Lounge Armchair w Original Label
Listed for sale is a mid 1940s Jens Risom for Knoll Associates 652U easy lounge armchair. This gorgeous and original example is one of the finest original Knoll pieces I've seen, remarkably preserved and seemingly all original. This chair retains its original label, marked Knoll Associates 601 Madison Avenue. Florence and Hans Knoll moved to that office in 1942 and remained there only for a handful of years before transitioning to another location. Please see photos for condition. It measures 29.5 in tall by 26 in deep and 24 in wide. There is also a matching lounge chair (of a slightly different design style), which came from the same Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania estate and is shown in the same fabric.
