Jens Risom worked as a designer for Knoll beginning in 1941. He was drafted into the U.S. Army soon thereafter. On his return, he created his own company, Jens Risom Design. His ad campaign, featuring photographs by Richard Avedon and the tagline "The Answer is Risom," led to terrific sales. I scanned this ad page from the May 1954 issue of "Interiors."
