In designing the Grace coffee chair, Birgit Hoffmann and Christoph Kahleyss got their inspiration from the soft elegance of leather draped loosely over a chair. The name Grace was inspired by strong and self-confident women like Grace Kelly or Grace Jones. For the designers Birgit Hoffmann and Christoph Kahleyss it was clear early on that a particularly thick leather, contrasting with a fine frame, would make the Grace furniture models so attractive.
Leather is a natural material, and designers need to harness its characteristics in order to turn their ideas into reality. With its finely-positioned open stitches, the leather used is at once robust and elegant, full of archaic heft yet with an undeniable grace. This chair is the result of more than 400 hours of work, distilled into a finished piece that earns its name. The covering is available in four different shades of leather: Ebony, Coffee, Cognac & Anthracite.
