Making of Cuoio

Walter Knoll, 2010

Through different model stages we tried to modulate a thin leather skin. Cutting three slots and fastening these with three rivets resulted in an ergonomic shell. We added a minimal wire structure and Cuoio was born. 

Cuoio is natural and modern at the same time. Moreover, by reducing the materials used, the chair is easily recyclable and therefore particularly sustainable. The Cuoio Chair is available with or without arms, entirely in black or in three different shades of brown.
