Jürgen Laub (b.1964) + Markus Jehs (b.1965) are both industrial designers from the Schwabisch Gmund University in 1992.They established the studio Jehs+Laub in 1994, and over the past couple of years they have designed furniture for Cassina, Renz, Thonet, Acerbis and lamps for Nemo and Belux. They have also designed the new showroom concept for Mercedes Benz, which is currently being implemented globally.
The new Space lounge series started in Fritz Hansen as concept furniture, i.e. it was introduced as prototypes and the series received so much positive feedback; it is therefore a natural decision to introduce Space in 2007.
Jehs+Laub about design:
“We want our products to look as if they had designed themselves. Like in nature. The design is like a human body – every element helps the other and provides stability and flexibility”
