'Second Skin' chair by Quinze & Milan

The Belgian manufacturer Quinze & Milan recently unveiled its newest output. The ‘Second Skin’ chair is composed of a simple frame of massive lacquered oak and a piece of thick leather which is wedged between the back and arm rests. If desired up to five layers of differently coloured leather can be apllied.

“For ‘Second Skin’ we stripped down the notorious easy chair from all unneccesary frills, until we were left with nothing but its core, the bones. Given the deconsructed chair and keeping in mind traditional upholstering in leather, we then started playing – the result being a comfortable chair reflecting a 21st century interpretation of time honoured craftmanship”, the manufacturer explains.
