Despite their unique designs, armchairs Sernambetiba and Tropics have something in common. It is the Carioca touch of the Lattoog duo. In the third edition of Design na Pele, designers Pedro Moog and Leonardo Lattavo joined Moora Mobília Brasileira. Armed with suede from the Rusan tannery, they have made pieces that bring together sophistication and comfort.
"The suede reminds one of the touch of skin on skin and makes the chairs even more welcoming", points the designer Pedro Moog.
Armchairs Sernambetiba and Tropics were the result of a mixture of leather, metal and wood and were icons of the ever-growing relationship between the leather-shoe industry and design culture.
"In our partnership of yet another issue of DNP, we see the application of suede give rise to bold and sophisticated design products, giving a feeling of comfort to both furniture and shoes," celebrates Rusan tannery's Camila Koefender.
Camila emphasizes that suede, besides being extremely comfortable, is a versatile material. "Suede is flexible, ranging from soft to firm skin, allowing for various types of application," he explains.
