Few designers represent the true spirit of German design as well as Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub. Since setting up their own firm in 1994, this designer duo’s talent has been sought after by world-renowned brands, from Mercedes-Benz to Fritz-Hansen. We were lucky enough to catch up with them at Orgatec 2018, and spent some quality time chatting about their initial years, design styles, inspirations and influences.
Jehs and Laub’s work ranges from furniture and products to lighting and interior design, and is underlined with a firm belief in the ethos of form following function. Which is why their portfolio includes some of the best products the contract furniture industry has to offer. This includes the Herman Miller’s Striad Chair from, Fritz Hansen’s Space Lounge chair and the JL Collection for Knoll.
