Interview: Rob Wall of JEB GROUP, Hong Kong

Showroom JEB Hong Kong

JEB Group knows a thing or two about the world of interiors. As a comprehensive supplier of architectural products and services based in Quarry Bay – Hong Kong, the company provides residential, commercial and hospitality projects with design-driven imported furniture. Here’s what Rob Wall, Managing Director at JEB Group, had to say regarding his professional upbringing together with his views on design and Walter Knoll.

How did you first get into interior design and high-end furniture? How was JEB Group born?

In the early 90s, our former distributor also sold Vitra and Herman Miller. JEB Group was born out of three companies: JEB (partitions), JEB Furniture Solutions (formerly BW Furniture) and Jeb Architectural Finishes (Formerly Infinity Finishes).

How would you define Walter Knoll and its products?

Walter Knoll is an expression of quality at its finest. There is no detail that has not been considered and there is no compromise in the manufacturing or the selection of the materials in the product.

What do JEB Group and Walter Knoll have in common?

A philosophy of providing the best that you can provide, constantly striving for improvement and at the core of our business is our people and our culture.

Where do you see Walter Knoll in your market area in the near and distant future?

We will continue to promote the brand in partnership with the local representative Nils Crusius and bring Walter Knoll to the people of Asia Pacific. There is a lot of work to do but when it is something you love, work becomes a pleasure.

Name three of your favorite Walter Knoll pieces.

I personally love the classic pieces that have been re-released – 369 chair, FK chair and Haussmann 310.
