What makes a chair a chair? What distinguishes it from a stool, a sofa or a bench for that matter? For Second Skin, we stripped down the notorious easy chair from all unnecessary frills, until we were left with nothing but its core, the bones. Given the deconstructed chair and keeping in mind traditional upholstering in leather, we then started playing – the result being a comfortable chair reflecting a 21st-century interpretation of time-honoured craftsmanship.
A strikingly simple framework, created from massive lacquered oak, supports a generous piece of leather skin which is wedged between the back and arm rests. Each chair is constructed by hand and totally unique, due to the variety in cut-outs of big pieces of leather and the way they are draped around the framework.
