What makes a chair a chair? What distinguishes it from a stool, a sofa or a bench for that matter? For Second Skin, Quinze & Milan stripped down the notorious easy chair from all unneccesary frills, until they were left with nothing but its core, the bones. Given the deconstructed chair and keeping in mind traditional upholstering in leather, they then started playing – the result being a comfortable chair reflecting a 21st-century interpretation of time-honoured craftmanship.


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 constucted 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. The wink to fashion should be obvious, as well as the reasoning behind its name - although apart from leather, there is also the option of upholstering the chair in the desired colour of fabric Divina by Kvadrat. If desired, up to five layers of (contrasting) leather or fabric can be applied to one chair.
