A GLIMPSE OF TOMORROW’S FORMAL LANGUAGE. » Exciting cantilever chair with an unseen look » Slender, dynamic appearance thanks to delicate, curved arm-rests » Seamless transition between frame, seat shell and arm-rest » Flexible polygonal blades ensure optimum adaptation of the plastic shell to the human body » Top seating comfort thanks to ergonomic shape ray: a new, dynamic archetype of a cantilever chair For this year’s Orgatec, Brunner has tackled a classic theme: a new cantilever chair. Even at first sight, the new chair ray, also designed by jehs+laub, is fascinating thanks to its flowing formal language and its delicate yet strong dynamic look and feel. The die-cast aluminium armrests are mounted to the steel frame and the plastic seat shell without any visible connection, and the transition from frame to seat shell is just as seamless. Plain looks, complex interior “Designs that at first seem very simple are typical for jehs+laub. The complexity is in the construction”, as Dr. Marc Brunner, co-owner and Managing Director, describes the development process. The interior of the plastic seat shell consists of polygonal blades that individually adapt to the body, similar to a slatted frame. The delicate exterior gives no hint of the complex interior – which is precisely the designers’ intention. For a person taking a seat on ray is supposed first and foremost to enjoy the pleasant comfort and the aesthetical look of this chair.
