Bonh by jehs+laub
Connecting the natural environment with the workplace, Bonh by jehs+laub for Davis Furniture gives designers an interior accessory that harmoniously blends the architectural with the organic. A collection of cascading planters, Bohn’s modern, geometric shapes were created to starkly contrast with an infinite variety of plants used to bring the outdoors in. Bonh’s biophilic design subsequently contributes to the overall health and well-being of the occupants while also providing a striking visual to any interior.
Designed to be used singularly or in groups, the Bonh planter provides designers with space separation or accent options depending on its configuration. Fabricated with a trio of steel cylinder forms and various support rods, Bonh is available in two heights and over 30 striking powder coat colors.
Davis Furniture’s Elements line of interior accessories spans from coat hooks, coat racks, umbrella stands and even side tables; Bonh now joins as the first Element to add an organic, biophilic aspect.
“Davis Furniture set up a goal for us to create an Element that would support not only the physiological but also the psychological needs of the end-user. Understanding the benefits of biophilic design, we pushed ourselves to design, Bonh, an Element that interior designers and architects could use to connect occupants with the natural environment and ultimately improve their well-being.” – jehs+laub
From aesthetic to functional, Bonh is effectively poised to adapt to the modern interior’s ever-evolving needs, whether it be in workplace, hospitality, educational or residential applications.
Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub met each other during their academic studies of industrial design in Germany and became friends after an internship in New York in 1990. Shortly after they graduated, they set up their studio, jehs+laub, in 1994. From that time on, they started to design furniture and lamps for Italian companies, such as Cassina, Ycami and Nemo. They soon expanded their collaboration with brands like Fritz Hansen, Knoll International, Renz, Stelton, Schönbuch, Cor and Wilkhahn. Davis Furniture began its long-standing collaboration with jehs+laub in 2009, and since that time, the designers have created multiple award-winning collections, including the Ginkgo family, A-Collection, Poise Occasional tables, Sachet, Reed and Hue, to name a few.
