With the design of Igman Lounge Chair, Harri Koskinen, successfully bridged Bosnian and Finish craftsmanship traditions. The chair has a strong, but unpretentious character. The softly rounded structure in solid wood creates a feeling of warmth, while the understated carvings underneath the armrests create a subtle tactile feeling. Igman chair is upholstered in vegetable tanned thick saddle leather, but it is also available in a choice of fabrics.
Igman Ottoman was designed to follow the typology of the Igman Lounge Chair and it complements the chair both visually and in terms of providing the additional comfort that enables one to easily doze off in a beautiful nook that these two create. The ottoman can also be used for sitting, while two or more ottomans can be combined into a bench.

NATURAL LEATHER AND HOW IT AGES
Natural or uncoated leather is made of skin hides (most often cow hides) through the so called tanning process. During the tanning process, hides are treated with natural tannins and starts out as a light cream color similar to the color of light human skin. The more the leather is exposed to direct sunlight the darker it gets, similar to human skin. Natural leather will, among other things, absorb oils from human skin. This relationship between the material and the owner is what makes the aging process of the raw leather so unique. The older the natural skin gets the more character it will have and the more beautiful it will look for most people. Perfectly even and refined looking surface is not a characteristic of natural leather and this natural look is exactly what Igman chair designer Harri Koskinen was looking for.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF NATURAL LEATHER
Water and other substances are absorbed by natural leather and may leave stains. Stains caused by water are less visible on an already aged leather. If these stains are a concern, one should avoid wetting of surfaces made in natural leather. When some water is spiller, to minimize staining, one should use a slightly damp cloth to wipe out the area where the water was spilled and the wider surface should also be wiped in this way. In general, this is how natural leather should be cleaned.
