Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub met each other whilst studying industrial design at Schwabisch Gmund University and became friends after an internship in New York in 1990. They graduated in 1992 and then set up jehs+laub in 1994. From that time on they started to create designer furniture and lamps for Italian companies such as Cassina, Ycami and Nemo. Year by year they expanded the cooperation with international brands like Thonet, Fritz Hansen, Belux, Renz, Stelton, Fambuena, Schönbuch, COR and Wilkhahn.
"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".
