I Found Cuoio at the Walter Knoll booth at IMM Cologne 2011. The second photo of the lounge chair demonstrates that the decorators of a booth should not interfere with a chair. The additions obliterate a clear view on a clear design. The first photo is of the bar stool variant.
Cuoio leather, which gives the chair its name, and black powdered steel form the skin and frame. The cutouts in the seat and back surfaces are not only decorative, but have a form-giving function analogous to tailored clothes.
