SKiN armchair
Jean Nouvel Design, 2007

SKiN is a paradigm of the careful use of materials. It’s a sort of utopia, an “object-sculpture” suspended, as ancient as leather, as innovative as pre-tensioned tubolar steel, upholstered in hide leather, with self-modelling geometric incisions. It’s the sign of a great architect, but also a small technological revolution. It exists thanks to the experience of the Musée du quai Branly in Paris in 2006.

The SKiN collection – armchair and sofa – will be shaped by time and usage, and leather will be part of this process.
