Cover Features

Calf LeatherCalf Leather: bovine leather coming from European and extra European slaughters, chrome tan, dyeing according to EEC rules, average measure m² 4/5 and thickness 0,9/1 mm. Calf leather or contract leather is a corrected grain leather. It has a very competitive price, it's fairly soft to the touch and long lasting. Calf leather is a material with an excellent value for money.


Full Grain LeatherFull Grain Leather: bovine leather coming from European and extra European slaughters, chrome tan, dyeing according to EEC rules, average measures m² 4/5 and thickness 1,4/1,6 mm. Grain leather is still corrected grain but with a higher thickness than calf leather. This guarantees a longer duration and resistance. This leather surface is generally a little bit coarser to the touch compared to other kind of leathers


Aniline LeatherAniline Leather: bovine leather coming from European and extra European slaughters, chrome tan, dyeing according to EEC rules, average measure m² 4/5 and thickness 1,1/1,2 mm. Aniline leather is the most valuable leather used in the furniture sector. The superficial grain is natural and without corrections, it's also possible to catch a glimpse of the leather pores, veins and lines; infact the surface is not always homogeneous as in full grain or calf leathers. Aniline Leather also results very soft to the touch


Ludwig Mies Van Der RoheLudwig Mies Van Der Rohe was born in Aachen, Germany, on the 27th March 1886. In 1905, after his studies he moved to Berlin, where he worked in the office of the interior designer Bruno Paul and from 1905 to 1911 as an apprentice at the studio of Peter Beherens. Inspired by the classicism principles of Schinkel, after the First World War (1914-1918) he developed his own concept of art in the long-running search for an industrial style. His most daring glass and steel building projects weren't realized, because of the criticism of many designers and thinkers. In 1929 he designed the German Pavilion at the international exposition in Barcelona: the pavilion’s internal walls, made of glass and marble, could be moved around as they did not support the structure. The concept of fluid space with a seamless flow between indoors and outdoors was further explored in other projects. To the Bauhaus period belong also the elegant Villa Tugendhat in Brno and the rooms, realized for the exposition in Berlin. He also received a lot of rewards, as a prove of his great skills. He moved to America in 1938 and then settled in Chicago. He died in Chicago, at the age of 83.
