30 range - Design: jehs+laub
A Class of its Own
For the anniversary edition, the designer duo jehs+laub has taken the play of contrasts to the subject of upholstery. Even the standard upholstery stands apart for its perfectly stitched covers and frame fully fitted with foam, extra padding and wave springs. These details are normally only encountered in exclusive upholstered furniture. The combination of the two elastic Powerjoint supports at the front and the supporting leaf springs at the back generates springy comfort in all directions. For the Iconic Edition, upholstery foam, laminated on both sides, is added to part of the seat and backrest cover. Stylish, diamond-shaped top stitching is used to sew the foam to the cover. Due to all the many, three-dimensional mini cushions, the upholstery offers superior comfort. It also lends the chair a unique appearance and the centuries-old top stitching method adds a touch of luxurious quality. And together with the elegant, iconographic shape of the chair, the result is a seminal symbol with an aesthetic all of its own.
