The Skin Collection is a reaction to the 25-30 percent waste produced by the furniture industry. The furniture is found on the street or secondhand and modified and then covered in pieces of leather leftovers. What creates this amount of waste are things like the organic shape of the animal, its scratches, damages, scars and none matching colors after dying. This project is fed by the nature of this leather scrap, turning it into random patterns, referring to cell structures and growth in nature. The cover grows slowly around the object where colors blend together. The entire process is done by hand. It merges discarded objects with a skin made out of waste and gives it a new life.
Material: Leather remnants, found objects
All items of Skin Collection are one-offs. Availability, prices and commisions on request.
Leather Loops is another reaction to waste leather. Fully rejected skins, faded by sunlight or with too many damages are used in this project. Like an l.p. the leather tops can easily be swapped within the family of frames.
The rejected skins are cut down to straps and rolled up to seats. These straps are both cut and rolled up in different ways to bring diversity in a standard process. Any leftover leather skin can be used as the seat only reveals the end grain of the leather. All damages and color differences are hidden inside the seat.
