Davis Furniture Expands Sachet Collection by jehs+laub
Since its introduction in 2017, the Sachet Arm Chair has quickly become a designer go-to for a variety of applications and aesthetics. As a result of Sachet’s widespread popularity and appeal, Davis Furniture and jehs+laub returned to development to learn how to provide further versatility for this popular chair. After further discovery, the designers and manufacturer are pleased to announce the release of two additional silhouettes. Offered as an armless chair and coordinating barstool, these two new additions mirror the same modern details, level of comfort and design language of the original Sachet chair but from an expanded perspective. This updated, multi-use series presents an even greater diversity of aesthetic options for the collection ranging from sophisticated to casual applications.
Dominated by angular forms and finely tailored details, the Sachet Collection’s refined style creates the foundation for Sachet’s design story. Featuring an innovative seat suspension system, the molded foam seat is finished with refined upholstery details such as a welt that traces the edge of each piece. This coordinating or contrasting welt provides designers with an additional opportunity to provide visual intrigue. A classic stitch detail centered in the back of each piece offers a simple solution for the tailor-made upholstery. While the new addition brings a low-back armless chair to the series, the classic Sachet armchair is available in low, mid and high-back options.
“Sachet’s form is modern and edgy yet simple and classic. It’s one of those seating collections where it blends into whatever space it’s placed within. These new additions add even more versatility and flexibility to this collection.” -jehs+laub
A wide range of base options for the arm and armless chairs build upon this classic piece’s appeal, including a wire base, four-leg metal base, four-leg wood base, four-prong caster base, four-prong glide base and five-star caster base. Bases are available in various finishes and materials, from solid walnut or oak to polished aluminum or powder-coated steel.
Another perfect addition to the collection, the new Sachet Barstool mimics the classic chair’s form while offering a solution for counter and bar height applications. Available with solid wood and sled base options, this new addition takes the series to new heights. Fitting beautifully in many applications from corporate to hospitality, the Sachet Collection continues to transform by offering restructured comfort and style for the next generation of seating.
Markus Jehs and Jürgen Laub met each other during their industrial design studies 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 their long-standing collaboration with jehs+laub in 2009 and have since designed multiple award-winning collections, including the Ginkgo Collection, A- Collection, Poise Occasional tables, Sachet, Reed and Hue to name a few.
