Calf Leather

Calf 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 Leather

Full 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 Leather
Aniline Leather
: bovine leather coming from European and extra European slaughters, chrome tan, dyeing according to ECC 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.

FabricFabric : composition 63% cotton and 37% linen, weight 380 gr/sm, height 140 cm.

Designer
Eero SaEero Saarinenarinen was the son of the famous Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen, first president of the "Cranbrook Academy of Arts". Born in Helsinki, he emigrated with his faimily to the United States in 1923. After having studied sculpture in Paris (1929 - 1930), he studied architecture at Yale where he took his degree in 1934. He then won a scholarship that gave him the opportunity to travel around Europe (1934 - 1935) and after his return he started teaching at "Cranbook Academy of Arts". In 1937 Saarinen started a collaboration with Charles Eames that brought him to develop avant-garde furniture, rewarded several times at the "Organic Design in Home Furnishing" competition. He worked in his father's agency until Eliel's death in 1950. His biggest architectural project remains the famous TWA terminal at "Kennedy" airport in New York.

Specifiche Materiali
Pelle Vitello: pelle bovina proveniente da macelli europei ed extraeuropei, concia al cromo, tintura secondo normativa CEE, misura media mq 4/5, spessore 0,9/1 mm. La pelle Vitello o smerigliata ("contract" leather) è una pelle a grana corretta. E' una pelle dal prezzo molto competitivo, che presenta una discreta morbidezza al tatto e una buona tenuta nel tempo. Ottimo compromesso qualità prezzo.

Pelle Pieno Fiore: pelle bovina proveniente da macelli europei ed extraeuropei, concia al cromo, tintura secondo normativa CEE, misura media mq 4/5, spessore 1,4/1,6 mm. La pelle Fiore Stampato ("grain" leather) è sempre una pelle a grana corretta ma con spessore maggiore rispetto alla pelle Vitello. Questo ne garantisce una maggiore durata e resistenza nel tempo. La superficie della pelle è generalmente un po' più ruvida al tatto rispetto alle altre pelli.

Pelle Anilina: pelle bovina proveniente da macelli europei ed extraeuropei, concia al cromo, tintura secondo normativa CEE, misura media mq 4/5, spessore 1,1/1,2 mm. La pelle Anilina ("aniline" leather) è la pelle più pregiata utilizzata nell'arredamento. La grana superficiale si presenta naturalmente e non ha subito correzioni, tanto che è possibile intravvedere pori, venature, solchi per cui la sua superficie non è sempre omogenea come nella pelle pieno fiore o vitello. Al tatto risulta molto morbida.

Tessuto: composizione 63% cotone e 37% lino, peso 380 gr/mq, altezza 140 cm.
