A touch of new objectivity

Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
Inspired by traditional quilting, the Jehs+Laub Collection—which includes a Lounge Chair and accompanying Ottoman—offers a tactile dialogue between functional form and sculptural shape. Compromised of block patterns that are joined and completed with a surrounding border, it weds craftsmanship with distinctive style. The Collection is appropriate as a statement piece for reception areas, private offices, break areas or residences, offering a welcoming retreat whether one is working, relaxing or even napping. The upholstery process used to create the Jehs+Laub Collection utilizes hidden seam tufting, a technique which creates a clean, tufted surface without the need for traditional welts or buttons. The Lounge chair and Ottoman are available with a distinctive black pedestal or an architectural, dynamic wire base; an optional articulating back provides enhanced comfort. KnollTextiles fabrics or Spinneybeck leathers with a welt detail offer maximum versatility.
