Triptiek is a growing collection of interior objects, equipped and adorned with leather patterns. It’s a collaboration with interior collective ONBETAALBAAR; the process was realised thanks to TOP-atelier.
Leather is recovered from thrifted seats and factory surpluses, and cut into strips. I combine the client’s colour preferences with the leather availability. The strips are woven into firm patterns, reminiscent of traditional rattan caning; leftover pieces are quilted into larger patches.
These unique leather covers provide comfort and colour to custom furniture. The current collection entails wooden seats, bar stools and side tables, but other products using this versatile technique can be made upon request. Each design is assembled in our workshop and woven by hand in a sheltered workplace.
