At this year’s SaloneSatellite show in Milan, we met Georg Öhler and Nina Mair, two of the three designers from the Pudelskern Space Agency, a young design group from Austria. At the show, they were exhibiting Saddler, an easy chair made from ash and nut wood, and leather.
Saddler is forming leather to soothe the curves of the rider. Being
skin itself leather is one of the most sensual materials to the human
touch. The seat and the backrest of the easy chair are formed as a
smooth landscape of valleys and hills. Exclusively naturally tanned
leather is used. The frame contains itself and sports artful details of
joinery being assembled by mortise and tenon. Two different types of
wood are worked with to produce a light-dark combination.
