Developed in collaboration with David Thulstrup
FLUX® is a new type of protected leather that resembles nubuck, with a matt look akin to neoprene. It’s an innovative leather that we developed in close collaboration with architect and designer David Thulstrup, featuring a velvety-soft surface with a muted effect that’s ultra modern.
The name FLUX® reflects this fusion of concepts: nubuck and neoprene in a protected leather. A hybrid leather that’s especially appealing in a market that’s in a constant state of flux.
Enjoy the smooth, tactile sensation that nubuck is known for. Its earthy sophistication and subtle, natural texture. The muted matt look of neoprene. In addition to all the advantages of protection, involving a very fine surface coating that’s unperceivable to the eye, which renders FLUX® resistant to scuffing and fading.
The colour palette is based on natural, honest colours interspersed with carefully selected vibrant hues. These tones are particularly suitable for architectural interiors. Like an ensemble, each hue has a strong identity but the colours work harmoniously together, creating a contemporary yet timeless look.
FLUX® is more than a fresh take on exclusivity. Inspiring new types of design concepts, interiors and opportunities for lush tactile experiences that last.

Based on international test standards and other recognised test processes, the certification involves around 100 test parameters.

Care & cleaning
As a natural material, leather requires looking after. If you care for the leather in the right way, it will become even more beautiful over time. Here are a few tips:
Our leather is ready for you to use as soon as it arrives, so there is no initial need to treat it or clean it. Over time if you see the need for cleaning, use a vacuum cleaner once or twice a month with a soft brush to remove any dust. Once or twice a year for thorough cleaning, use the foam from soap flakes stirred in warm water. Apply the foam with a dry soft cloth, minimising any contact with water. Avoid bar soap, saddle soap, leather cleaners, household detergents or chemical products. Protect from direct sunlight, excessive heat and sharp objects
The care and maintenance of leather will always depend on the specific way in which it is used, the conditions of use and how often it is used.
