Rondo Collection by Lucy Kurrein for Molinari Living
View Slideshow

A collaboration that celebrates the art of leather working, the Rondo Collection features a sofa and chair designed by Lucy Kurrein for Molinari Living that was inspired by punching bags. Looking at household leather objects that “radiate durability and craftsmanship”, Kurrein’s collection will be made with top quality, thick leather that resembles the strength of a punching bag.

The partnership came about as part of the Trentino Collaborations, which is a new initiative that brings British designers together with Trentino-based manufacturers. The new designs are being launched at this year’s London Design Fair.
