Walter Knoll Inside

The aura of good leather underlines the quality of design. Natural unevenness lends even more character, a definite sign of life. It is actually one of the characteristics of the very best leathers, along with suppleness and a minimal amount of dye, allowing leather to breathe. The selection of hides and the development of colors are two of the most important decisions for the subsequent quality of the furniture.

„Over the years, I have learnt that leather is one of the most fascinating natural materials. It challenges us again and again with its unique characteristics. To face these challenges and to experience them every day at work, makes my job truly special.”

– Uwe Steinmann, leather expert at Walter Knoll
