Barcelona based design studio Toru, has designed two unique chairs: Babu and Clop that both use a local leather from Igualada that provides a distinct and high quality finish, which points towards the cultural roots of the city.

Babu uses a 6mm leather section which folds back on itself to create the backrest and bottom. The chair which is positioned on the ground, is supported by small brass feet that hold the structure together. Toru state the design was influenced by the great journeys of desert tribes, who would sit in groups on the floor to eat, socialize and plan the route for their next journey. As well as a comfortable seat, the furniture piece aims to act as a place for meditation, comfort and relaxation.

Clop uses an unusual fold which extends over the backrest of the chair, creating a seamless finish from top to bottom. the piece brings two materials together- leather and wood- which purposely references the ‘clog shoe’ which uses the same material. This playful reference has been translated into a luxury product, allowing both material and concept to shape the final outcome.
