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 wood. Natural treated leather and ash wood for the structure.

By a conceptual approach, I focus on experimental furniture. I am fascinated by the contrast between the changeable and the unchangeable, the soft and the hard, the industrialized and the unique, and in my work, I try to melt together the concept. To achieve playful products, I work intuitively and I consciously aim to let the randomness be a part of the design process – I believe that if the process has been fun, the result will be the same.
