Tavo is a series of conference tables and table desks marked by rich character and a striking mix of materials. The design is centered around the concrete base, generating a prolific presence with its sculptural shape and neutral aesthetic.

With its melding organic shapes and raw materials, Tavo is sure to become the breathtaking centerpiece in any interior. Minimal in nature, the Tavo Table Collection adds warmth and character to the workplace. Designed with adaptability in mind, the tabletops are available in a variety of materials, from remarkable solid wood slabs to innovative Fenix laminates in a range of neutral hues. Resting between the tabletop and its concrete base, a steel structure provides support as well as visual intrigue.

Combining its concrete base with these diverse elements, Tavo exudes a harmonious design with its depth of materiality and technological precision. Blending the stylistic comforts of home with increased commercial durability, Tavo’s sculptural silhouette stands out as a modern showpiece design for any interior, from contract to residential.

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.
