Stuttgart designers Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub have been working together under the name of jehs+laub for more than 14 years. Their main focus of activity is on furniture, lamps and interior design. In 1992, they graduated as product design majors from the design university of applied sciences, the “hdpk” in Schwäbisch-Gmünd, a leading private university for the creative industries, and in 1994, they founded their design studio jehs+laub.
Asked about how the relationship between designer and manufacturer works, they reply: “It is like father and mother.” Next question: “And who’s the father?” Both: “The designer, of course!” Laub: “And the manufacturer is the mother. It is her who needs to incubate and develop, and finally the mutual child is born.”
