“It’s not the permanent impecable state that shows the best quality.”
Even more important is the dialogue of aging , the stories it can tell over time by the natural wear of the materials or by the times it is used. Counting experiences as it ages. Witnessing this process will be as exciting as the first time you sat on your favorite chair.
COLLECTOR MATERIALS GUIDE
The differences in quality and availability led us to group our materials in different classes so we could have the best material combinations and keep a competitive product.
We also let our materials lead the way when designing our products. They are the strongest deciding factor when it comes to decide shape and personality for a piece. All these aspects took us to explore and carefully choose a material library that was capable of best showcase our brand intention; “to fit a good idea.”

Leathers are one of the most unpredictable materials when it comes to work with raw materials, specially when working with aged leathers. This kind of chance gives the pieces a feel of singularity. We personally select our own leathers so we can better control this natural markings, guaranteeing the best quality.
Keeping it simple and focusing in only three different wood species lets us better understand these materials over time. Our best choice of woods and wood cuts allow us to strongly trust our wood frames and structures.
For better stability we put our confidence in our range of high quality wood veneers, a technique that reduces the risk of unwanted splits and warpings in wood surfaces.
We have partnered with best fabric suppliers and manufacturers to offer the best coverings for our upholstery.
We always search for the best fabric solutions in terms of durability and style versatility. Touch, color palette and visual texture are the first features that we look for when selecting fabrics for our brand. These, we believe, are the strongest characteristics of a fabric.
