Inuit Armor Chair by Lund & Paarmann for Lopfurniture

Inuit Armor Chair by Lund & Paarmann is one of the designers’ new pieces for Lopfurniture and are extension of their current collection.

Inuit Armor Chair is a dining chair in solid walnut, painted steel and Inuit sealskin from the Phoca groenlandicus (Greenland seal). Interestingly, even with sealskin being an extraordinary material, it is one that is legal to buy and sell.

The reason why the designers chose to useĀ Intuit skins is because the Greenland Inuit hunters have great difficulties in selling their sealskin as the EU has made a rule against importing all other sealskins than the sustainable skins from Greenland.
