Despite being one of the most commonly used materials in the world, leather production is still an extremely inefficient process due to its origins. In efforts to make leather more sustainable, Spanish designer Jorge Penadés created a new method of production to revitalize discarded leather waste from factories.
Structural Skin is a capsule collection created from this new material that is made completely of discarded leather waste, including any binder or resin used during production.
Structural Skin consists of a hanger and side table, both made completely of leather offcuts, giving new life to what was once considered waste. Jorge is currently contemplating new ways of creating different monochromes and color mixes for different aesthetics.
