Concept

The seating theme continues with the exploration of the formal and technical development of thick leather. A simple, comfortable chair with refined details created in just one material, Doyl introduces a type of padded leather chair where the classic proportions are inverted, transforming lines that are normally concave into convex sections, and thus enhancing the perception of softness. The designers placed great importance on graphic markings, created through continuous stitching on both the fronts and backs of the chair which correspond to the cutting lines and junctions of the thick leather. The leather is folded, curved and turned inside out, but never cut. The padding adds surprising comfort for a leather chair, while alternative technical materials offer brightly coloured variations.
