Authentic Saarinen Conference dining desk chair by Knoll International
Knoll uses modern design to connect people to their work, their lives, their world. Since 1938, Knoll has been recognized internationally for creating workplace and residential furnishings that inspire, evolve, and endure.
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. Their interior design portfolio includes the master concept of worldwide showrooms for Mercedes-Benz® and suite 606 at the Ice Hotel in Sweden.
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.
