Ginkgo Rope by jehs+laub
Ginkgo Rope is a fresh interpretation of the classic Ginkgo chair. Staying true to the series’ iconic silhouette, each piece is trademarked by a complex curvature mimicking the Ginkgo leaf. With this most recent addition, jehs+laub worked to further expand the Ginkgo family’s offering by embracing a new material and manufacturing technique.
When asked about this new extension, jehs+laub stated,
“The Ginkgo Collection is one of our most successful and striking designs we have with Davis, so we wanted to explore how we could continue to push the boundaries with this collection. That’s how Ginkgo Rope was born.”
This new design includes a chair, barstool and an eye-catching lounge. Each piece is suitable for indoor or outdoor environments, and pairs perfectly with jehs+laub’s Ginkgo Wire tables, which Davis launched additional options for earlier this year. The extended table line includes new sizes, shapes and an innovative metal top option, perfect for outdoor applications.
For the new and exciting Ginkgo Rope design, jehs+laub studied weaving practices and eventually landed on a technique that they believe would provide designers with an invigorated aesthetic for the series while seamlessly blending within the Ginkgo collection.
Ginkgo Rope’s seat and back is hand-woven by highly skilled Italian artisans and constructed of marine grade polyester rope.
The series is offered in 7 collection specific colors with each colorway containing a nuanced palette of mélange fibers which adds a subtle depth to every rope’s color.
Ginkgo Rope further proves the universality of Ginkgo’s exceptional design for commercial, hospitality and even residential interiors.
