Striad™ High Back Lounge Chair & Ottoman With Wire Base

striad™ high back lounge chair & ottoman with wire base

striad™ high back lounge chair & ottoman with wire base

Design Jehs+Laub, 2016
Wire base, thermoplastic polymers, upholstery
Made by Herman Miller®

A distinct presence, sleek and contoured form, and premium comfort, Striad contemporizes the concept of a lounge chair. Inspired by the construction of high-performance ski boots, Stuttgart-based designers Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub designed the Striad Lounge Chair and Ottoman in layers to deliver a premium experience of comfort. The outermost layer, a rigid shell, is merged with an inner shell constructed of a natural fiber composite material, which is then fully upholstered. Individually upholstered dual-density foam cushions form the third layer, resulting in an optimal combination of firm support and supple, pliable comfort.

Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub live and work in Stuttgart, Germany and have been renowned for their modern classic furniture and lighting designs as well as interior projects, most notably, suite 606, at the ice hotel in northern sweden and the worldwide master concept for Mercedes-benz® showrooms. After attending germany's prestigious school of design in schwäebisch gmuend, the team cemented their friendship during an internship in new York and later founded jehs+laub in 1994. The partnership has been the recipient of numerous international design awards.

A rigid outer shell provides the foundation of the Striad collection. The Inner shell is made with a combination of natural fibers, such as hemp, flax, jute, and sisal with thermoplastic polymers. The fabric is layered with individually upholstered dual-density foam cushions provide the softness people expect of a lounge chair. The shell and cushions can be specified in contrasting textiles, or the same textile for a consistent look.

The Collection is offered in low-, mid-, or high-back versions, each with a choice of a four-star auto-return base or fixed four-leg wire base-as well as several finish and upholstery options-Striad can be outfitted appropriately for a multitude of spaces.

Jehs+laub

Markus Jehs (b. 1965) and Jürgen Laub (b. 1964) met while studying industrial design at Schwabisch Gmund University and became friends after an internship in New York in 1990. After graduating, they set up Jehs + Laub in Stuttgart, in 1994. They quickly began designing furniture and lamps for Italian companies, such as Cassina, Ycami, and Nemo, and expanded internationally over the years to work with brands like Thonet, Fritz Hansen, Belux, Renz, Stelton, Fambuena, and Schoenbuch.
Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with modern furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
