2ND SKIN

FURNITURE

BLAST FROM THE PAST

What make a chair a chair ?What distinguishes it from a stool, a sofa or a bench for that matter ?

For the 2nd 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 21 st-century interpretation of time honored craftsmanship.
