The Space™ series is designed by the German design duo Jehs+Laub.
The duo is inspired by the human body and nature’s ability to design itself. Their ambition is always to make things that are straightforward and not too labored. The Space series is designed from the idea of the comfortable feeling of sitting in a hand. The lines of the design resemble the paths, the roads and the fields of a landscape.
The shell is made of injection-molded fiber-reinforced lacquered plastic with front upholstery.
The base is made of lacquered steel matching the color of the shell and with transparent leg ferrules and spacer block between the seat and the base.
Jehs + Laub
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 Space 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”.
