From country house to city loft, FOLD is a collapsible coat stand that’s at home just about anywhere. Mounted on a frame of solid walnut, the brushed stainless steel coat rails accomodate about a dozen coat hangers. The hand-crafted, saddle-stitched suspended tray in black leather is great for depositing accessories and shopping bags. Folded away, the coat holder is just 7 cm deep. But it tends to be in use all of the time. And on the odd occasion when it isn’t, it looks good simply as it stands.
Jehs + Laub
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.
