Muse by Jehs+Laub is a soft and sculptural lounge chair that projects modern elegance. The stylish silhouette embraces the body, inviting you to relax into its form. This small-scale lounge piece is timeless and uniquely simple with flowing lines and soft surfaces. Available with three distinctive base options, Muse is a dynamic seating collection with a style to inspire any space.

What features make Muse stand out in the crowd?

There is beauty in the simplicity of the design. The scale of the chairs, and choice of materials and base styles offers seating solutions to fit almost any requirement.

Where will this product fit in with the new workplace styles that are emerging?

Muse is a perfect small-scale lounge piece, ideal for collaborative areas or break out areas. The design is fun and unique with an exceptionally elegant style.

What innovations in choice of materials or fabrication are utilized in the manufacture of this new product?

Muse is constructed with an innovative technique to reduce manufacturing waste. The molded foam seat is manufactured with four individual molds, one for each portion of the seating area. Utilizing this method, rather than carving foam parts, is a much more efficient method of manufacturing.

Where do you think the installation of this product will be most effective?

We see multiple possibilities for this product. The size, scale and base options allow designers to specify Muse for collaborative areas, lounges and lobby areas. We think Muse also lends itself to use in many types of hospitality spaces. Muse is a versatile seating solution that can work anywhere! Muse looks great grouped together around a central working lounge height table, or standing alone with individual height laptop or work tables.

What do you think our readers will love about Muse?

The option to choose a base and upholstery treatment that best fits their needs. Altering those items gives designers flexibility to adapt the design aesthetic to their project(s). We feel those options can work in a variety of spaces and styles.
