It’s unusual to find a designing duo. Over the course of history, there have been a few famous teams, but usually creative types like to work alone for the most part, only coming out from their shells to collaborate with companies and others occasionally. That’s why we love to highlight when two people find their creative soul mates and make the world a more beautiful place by finding the power to work together, like the dynamic duo of Jurgen Laub & Markus Jehs. Jurgen Laub was born in Ulm, Germany in 1964 and Markus Jehs in Stuttgart, Germany in 1965. They met when they were studying industrial design at the Hochshcule für Gestaltung Schwäebisch Gmuend (graduating in 1992) and then became even better friends when they did an internship together in New York City in 1994.

Soon after that fateful internship, they set up their partnership and their studio: jehs+laub studio. They basically design a whole lotta of stuff, from furniture, to lighting, to accessories, to even interiors. After starting their studio, they hit it big pretty quickly, working with such famous companies as Cassina, Nemo, Ycami and Acerbis. They tackled office furniture and furniture for the home for German company Renz, Schönbuch and Thonet. They’ve created some lounge designs for Fritz Hansen and candleholders for Stelton.

They contributed their brilliance to suite 606 at the Ice Hotel in Sweden one year and gained much recognition for their designs of the master concept of worldwide showrooms for Mercedes-Benz®. Being so prolific, they’ve won a lot of international design awards for their work in the field.
