Skin Collection by Pepe Heykoop

July 15th, 2011 by retail design blog

Amsterdam based designer Pepe Heykoop has created ‘Skin Collection’, a series that uses existing furniture and scrap leather to form new compositions from unwanted items. Triggered by the large amount of waste produced in the furniture industry – reaching 30% at times – the design looks to reinterpret the disregarded objects and material in a new and whimsical way.

Each object embodies a distinct uniqueness, reminiscent of cell structures and growth in nature. Tactile and abstract, the fragments of leather both cover and modify the form of each piece, with a pattern that is dictated by the random dimensions of each material scrap.
