Swiss designer Daniel Heer is a master at using leather to create intricate designs that are both contemporary yet traditional. Daniel Heer’s high-quality leather work is the modern rendition of family tradition that dates back more than one hundred years.

In his ‘Made in Leather’ collection, Daniel Heer reveals a set of latticework seating referred to as ‘Keil’, which means ‘wedge.’ His website describes that Keil is the connection between the furniture piece and its textile—the wood of the chair base and the woven material that forms the grid-like lattice design overtop.
