Vacona Leather

Aniline leather has none or only a light surface treatment which preserve the leather's natural surface and soft touch. All natural markings will be visible on aniline leather which contributes to the leather's exclusive appearance. The light surface treatment makes the leather breath and comfortable to sit in. On the other hand this kind of leather is very susceptible to dirt and will in time become a little darker. Only raw material from the best selection is used for aniline leather. In aniline leather it is possible to see the hair follicle in the grain. Raw material: Grain leather from South German cattle hides.

Description:

The Cow Horn Chair is one of the smallest chairs by Wegner, but it's an amazing work of art.

Wegner designed the PP505 Chair in 1952 as an immediate follow up to his breakthrough with the Round Chair (pp501/pp503 | The Chair). The continuity in shape and philosophy is obvious. But serving a different purpose Wegner created a chair that was to play an important role in his following line of works.

Wanting to pay homage to the breathtaking beauty of solid wood manually carved into organic shapes, Wegner decided to make a compact chair. Hence the number of pieces of solid wood used to form the armrests and back was reduced to only two pieces, joined in the middle. The joint obviously needs to be aligned with the grains of the wood with some kind of tenon and could be dowelled, but in this case Wegner decided that instead of hiding the unavoidable joint he would rather enhance it and make it a decorative feature of the design. To obtain the full visible effect, Wegner used wood of a contrasting colour.

This original idea would later become a characteristic trademark in many of his works and it is an important example of his honest and craftsman-like approach to design.
