Jehs + Laub are German designers who began their partnership in Italy with renowned companies Cassina, Nemo, Ycami and Acerbis. Bellow is an image of one of their piece, Jalis, in their COR line of furniture. It’s source of inspiration is unmistakably the orient with “jalis.” They have translated the arabian tradition of relaxation into cosmopolitan furniture concepts. Diversity from one form. Jalis can float, rest on pedestals, integrate or highlight tables, change levels, and incorporate niches and floor recesses. No matter where it stands, its enclosing backrests and deep seats create a sense of security.
