20x Sørensen Fine Leather

For this year Stockholm Design week we collaborated with Danish Brand Sorensen Leather, trying to enhance the experience of their beautiful products. The outcome is a colour box with 20x Sørensen fine leather created by us and a exhibition in our newly renovated studio in the heart of Stockholm.

An exclusive selection of 20 x Fine Sørensen Leathers reflecting a new expression of natural hues, matched with the NCS color system to go with it – making it into a toolbox of materials and colour. NCS – Natural Colour system is a cross industry color system that is used around the world for colour communication.The Colour Box was developed to inspire – whether you’re an architect, designer, artist, artisan or producer. We hope this box will evoke the emotions, imagery and sensations only leather can.

Our concept is based on the idea of redefining natural leather. In a common sense, we easily define natural leather in tones of colors that range from brown to black. But our approach has been to look into nature itself, to find the true colors in nature, and to define and collect them into a harmonious scale.

It is a beautiful thing, working with leather. It possesses all the wonderful quirks that only a natural material can. A complex surface, a naturally uneven texture, warmth, softness, durability. For us it has been exciting to choose our favourite qualities and colours from the rich range of Sorensen Leather. How do we really see leather and colour combined? Ideally, we want the natural characteristics of the leather to be coupled with a natural tone of colour.

But a natural tone may well be much more than a scale of browns. Therefore, we have been inspired by the tones of the landscape, in the surfaces of materials such as stone, soil, ash, sand. But also in the warmth of a sun drenched wall, a dense vegetation and the rain on a stormy sea.
