Letting each of the pieces cure naturally, furniture designer Guido Brinkmann covers his leather stool chair collection with a tough jacket of raw leather, hence the name 'Coat' for this series of seats.
Unconcerned with shaping and symmetry, the designer uses vegetable-tanned leather over a thin wire frame to get the basic silhouette of the stool series. Adding moisture to the taught material makes it more pliable and easy to manipulate, and the final shape occurs naturally while it sits to dry. Later, wax and heat are applied to harden and preserve the piece for a rugged and durable finish.
The 'Coat' leather stool chair collection has a rough look that is perfect for a man cave or over a rawhide rug.
