Description from the designer

Hardened Leather Chair is made with an old technique for hardening leather in a 100% natural way.The technique has been used for corsets and armours, and is now being used as self-supported upholstery for a dining chair.The shape of the chair, which is commonly seen in plastic, gets a Nordic materiality by the use of leather and the frame of light ash.
