NUANCE has a remarkable depth and dimension that exudes authenticity, with the added advantage that it’s designed to be durable. It’s a brand new type of protected leather we developed in close collaboration with SPACE Copenhagen, where the nuances are seen in the natural texture as well as the tones, which each derive from a gradient of grey.
Run your fingers along the surface of NUANCE and you can feel the realness and richness of a leather that’s lush to the touch. You can see the innate beauty of each hide, with all its natural patterns and imperfections. And you can relax knowing that a very light invisible coating keeps the subtleties and softness intact while protecting the leather from wear and tear. The result is a tactile sensation of a surface designed to be alluring and enduring.
Enjoy an array of evocative colours that span a spectrum of earthy hues. Each one has a nuance of grey, creating an uncanny sense of continuity. Watch the colours take on more character as a subtle patina emerges over time.
Indulge in the sensory experience of a luscious, durable leather rich with detail and depth.

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
