The Mater Shell Lounge Chair has a contemporary and elegant silhouette defined by the sculptural wooden frame and a “floating seat” that creates an interaction of stability and dynamism. The leather stitched seat is inspired by traditional craft practices in North India, particularly saddle making.
The Shell family is attempting to revitalize this skilled trade by providing leather-stitching artisans with a global market for their craft, thus encouraging them to pass it on to younger generations. The frame is crafted in solid FSC certified oak with a choice of three different water-based stains.
