Plain-weave linen

Armchair upholstery options for the designer 620 Chair Programme in Linen. Colours Flax, loden, grey, marine

Our 100%-pure linen is hypoallergenic and breathable, making it comfortable in warm and cool climates. The robust plain-weave (suitable for domestic and commercial use) wears its characteristic slub with pride, for a natural look and feel.

One of the oldest cloths on earth, linen is a zero-waste material made from the fibres of the flax plant, which needs minimal watering and uses little or no pesticides.

Full-grain leather

Leather armchair upholstery options for the designer 620 Chair Programme. Colours cinnamon, red, olive brown, chocolate, midnight blue, black

Our leather is full-grain, chrome-tanned and aniline-dyed. The surface structure has not been altered in any way, nor has any coating been applied – making it breathable and comfortable.

The result is a material that shows its natural scars, scratches and wrinkles – and will develop an enviable patina with age.
