Leather have always been one of my favoriteÂ materials. When I came across Tortie Hoare’s final major project on Dezeen while studying in Bucks New University in the UK,Â it’s structural yetÂ sophisticate form caught my eye.

Tortie experimented several different ways to structure the leather the way she wanted and came up with a boiled leather technique which achieved her goal. This project also won the UK graduate exhibition New Designers Part 2 awards. You’ll find more of her sharings through Dezeen, where they featured her thoughts while exploring her path towards crafting more beautiful leather furnitures.
