Designers: Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub
Location: Stuttgart, Germany
Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub are industrial designers who came together to create their own studio, Jehs+Laub in 1992. Since their inception they’ve successfully collaborated with Cassina, Renz, Thonet, Acerbis, Nemo, Belux and more. They have also designed the brand new showroom concept for Mercedes Benz that will be implemented worldwide. One of their latest furniture pieces, Hoc, was designed for German design company, Brunner.
Hoc is a small collection of furniture pieces that includes modern stools, benches and tall tables to match. What really stands out is the sculptural stool which is made from three identical pieces of plywood that, when fused together, create a cool, modern seat. Jehs & Laub explain their design as “purity reduced to an absolute minimum.” It’s like a beautiful, simple sculpture and a functional furniture piece at the same time.
The Hoc stools come stained with a lacquer, varnish, or a matte finish and even an optional seat cushion that will make it even more comfortable. Hoc is available in an array of colors and different heights (two) that will meet the needs of minimal and modern design lovers.
