Two of Knoll’s newest collaborators, Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub studied industrial design at the Hochshcule für Gestaltung Schwäebisch Gmuend. Their friendship was cemented while interning in New York, leading them to open Jehs+Laub in 1994. They have designed furniture and lighting for many of the world’s leading design companies, including Thonet, Cassina, and Fritz Hansen.
In 2008, Jehs and Laub came to Knoll with a lounge chair proposal. Inspired by the grids found in the work of Harry Bertoia, Mies van der Rohe, and Florence Knoll, the team developed a segmented seating surface that appears to be nothing more than a sculpted blanket.
At ease in the workplace or home, the Jehs+Laub Lounge Collection presents a sleek profile and sculptural interior that is both refined and approachable. The Knoll Studio logo and signature of Markus Jehs and Jurgen Laub are located on the underside of the chair and ottoman.
