Sif is a full grain, uncoated pure aniline ox hide. Only the very finest hides are chosen. The tanning and dying processes are one and the same. No final pigmentation or coating are applied, so slight variations within hides and between hides may occur. Sif has the most exclusive touch and the highest breathability. It has the most natural surface structure which is whey scars or other marks may be visible. Be aware that the light or vegetal colours will age with patina and grace – however, they are also very susceptible to stains. The darker colours will fade somewhat if exposed to sunlight for a longer period of time. We recommend this type of leather for those who want the very best comfort and quality, and who love the graceful ageing of the very best leather.

Thor is a semi-aniline ox hide with a natural grain and a coated surface. More uniform hides are chosen for this type of leather. It has a largely uniform surface structure with some visible scars or other marks. After aniline dying, a pigmentation coat is added to give perfect colour uniformity. Finally, a top coating is added to give the leather a protective layer. This type of leather has a good touch and low breathability. The advantages of Thor are that it requires low-maintenance and resists most stains and fading from sunlight. We recommend this type of leather for homeowners who want a good balance between maintenance and comfort. Thor is available in many colours.

Dream Chair (TA001)


design Tadao Ando, 2013

Tadao Ando designed the Dream Chair as a tribute to Hans J. Wegner. The Dream Chair is a comfortable furniture piece that invites relaxed reflection. A sculptural work of art in itself, the chair is particularly well suited for larger rooms where it can be seen and enjoyed from all angles. The Dream chair is made of three‐dimensional plywood, which has special characteristics that allows it to be curved along two axles during the molding process. Tadao Ando and the cabinetmakers at Carl Hansen & Søn pushed the size and curvature of the plywood sheet in order to achieve the necessary characteristics of a chair, attaining a result beyond what was thought to be possible when working with three‐dimensional plywood.
Tadao Ando founded Tadao Ando Architects & Associates in 1969, where his ideas on architectural design really took root. He has since achieved international acclaim and his original works have received prestigious awards such as the Carlsberg Prize in 1992, the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 1995, Premium Imperiale award in 1996, and the Royal Institute of British Architects Gold Medal in 1997.
The Dream Chair is available in oak or walnut (lacquered or oiled) without upholstery, or with fabric or leather upholstery on the front side and an adjustable neck cushion. The neck cushion can be adjusted 7cm. The chair can hold up to 160 kg.
