The Shade collection is an entirely new type of protected aniline leather developed in collaboration with Norm Architects. It has a very light layer of protection that’s imperceptible to the eye, designed so you can feel all of the natural nuances and subtleties of the surface.
Shade is a soft leather created to reflect the quiet, innate beauty of muted, earthy tones, ideal for partnering with other natural materials used in architecture and interior design, such as wood, stones, metals and tiles. Organic elements that make people feel calm, at peace and above all, welcomed in a space.
The silky matt surface triggers the desire to come closer to feel the lush richness of the leather. Up close you can see the natural markings unique to each hide that add character to absolutely any project you have in mind. Add to that a curated selection of hues with almost a duo-toned effect, including gradations of grey, earthy browns, sultry blacks and nuances in between. Colours that become even more fascinating with a lovely patina that will emerge over time and with exposure to light.
Enjoy this luxurious collection of subtle, soothing hues with a tactile sensation that’s utterly enthralling.
- Protected Aniline leather
- Appearance An earthy, understated elegance. Luxurious natural matt look. Muted, nuanced tones. Natural markings are part of the appeal. Elegant matt with a soft, silky, velvety feel.
- Care Over time if you see the need for cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner once or twice a month with a soft brush to remove any dust. Once or twice a year for thorough cleaning, use the foam from soap flakes stirred in warm water. Apply the foam with a dry soft cloth, minimizing any contact with water. Avoid bar soap, saddle soap, leather cleaners, household detergents or chemical products. Protect from direct sunlight, excessive heat and sharp objects
