Details

The Shell Chair is designed by the American designer Michael Dreeben and inspired by traditional craft practices in North India, particularly saddle making.

Exquisite saddles have been produced in India for centuries and although some horse culture persists, it’s disminshing as India becomes more technologically developed.

The Shell Chairs attempt to revitalize this skilled trade by providing leather stitching artisans with a global market for their craft and hopefully encourage them to pass it on to younger generations.

The wooden frame is crafted from FSC certified wood with a water-based stain and respects the local environment
