Suspenseful: “Mell Lounge” by designer duo Jehs & Laub blends casual comfort with minimalist elegance
In a manner of speaking, COR is interlübke’s younger sister. It was founded in 1954 – also by Leo Lübke, together with the then Prince of Bentheim-Tecklenburg. His Serene Highness’s coat of arms featured three hearts. And because producing outstanding upholstered furniture was a matter very close to the two co-founders’ hearts, they called the new enterprise COR, which is Latin for heart. (by Atrium)
‘Fossa’ is the new highly convertible sofa designed by Aurélien Barbry for the Germany manufacturer COR. Based on a very simple principle the piece is composed of cushion elements which find a stable place in recesses of the seating and can be moved or removed according to the user’s need.
‘Shrimp’ is the new armchair the Stuttgart based designers Jehs+Laub created for the German manufacturer Cor. The comparatively small appearing upholstery is characterised by its shell made from 2D-plywood which could be bent into the fitting shape, due to the regular gaps.
At the imm cologne the German manufacturer Cor presented the new ‘Cuvert’ chair for the first time. Until now, the ‘Cuvert’ range by Jehs & Laub consisted of easy chairs, sofas and stools which unfold their inner values from a strict basic form. The table and chair continue with this design language in 2009. The upholstered seating furniture is determined by different trapezium surfaces, while the table with its solid wooden top stems from the triangle and the square. ‘Cuvert’ is available in fabric or leather covers.
