Stolz Vegetal Leather

Full grain aniline leather from Scandinavian bullhides | 1.2 - 1.4 mm, vegetable tanned

The classic vegetable-tanned leather will develop the best patina over time because it absorbs light and air. The uncolored vegetable-tanned leather will develop a patina from light sand color to cognac.
Vegetable-tanned leather is susceptible to water and stains, which contributes to the natural patina and makes this leather extremely luxurious.

The iconic Chieftain Chair is one of Finn Juhl’s absolute masterpieces, representing the peak of his career as a furniture designer. At its introduction in 1949, the chair marked a renewal of the Danish furniture design tradition. Today, it is perceived as one of the most important exponents of the Danish Modern movement in the US during the 1950s. For this reason, Finn Juhl is often considered the father of Danish Modern.

Inspired by modern art, the Chieftain Chair with its organic shapes, liberated itself from traditional Danish furniture design and strict functionalism in both shape, construction and materials.

In 2012, the Chieftain Chair won the Danish Design Award, Classic. The jury said in its motivation: ”Today, the Chieftain Chair stands as an inspiration to a new generation of furniture designers and as proof that attention to quality, international calibre and a will to break away from tradition can pave the way to make a difference as a designer”.

The Chieftain Chair and Stool are manufactured in walnut and are upholstered in leather.
