Leda Armchair by Flexform
The Leda armchair designed by Antonio Citterio cleverly fuses classic and contemporary lines. The wood base is distinguished by a motif that echoes the tradition of Scandinavian design with a blend of elegance and rationality. Grafted into the base is the soft, padded shell of the seat. This enveloping shell is made of a special polymer that offers superior structural properties and the kind of softness that ensures the utmost in comfort. The upholstery is removable on all of the pieces in the Leda family.

Flexform uses just the highest quality of full grain leathers, which distinguish by their features such as softness, naturalness and meat-ness. The leather, rigorously tanned in Italy with careful and strengthened processes, it passes through a grinding phase, a sort of peeling, which smooths the surface preparing it for the dyeing. The used leathers are dyed with aniline with a process called passante, since the colour is completely absorbed up to the deepest lays. This means that it is not just the external surface which is dyed, but also the internal parts so that in case of scratches the natural colour of the skin’s animal is not going to be visible. The not total homogeneity of the surface needs to be considered a peculiarity of the natural leather and it becomes an aesthetic quality for everyone who can appreciate its value.
The types of solid wood used in Flexform and Flexform Mood products are oak, ash, Canaletto walnut, crotch mahogany and also, for the MOOD collection, rosewood. These types of wood can be left natural or stained various colors (coffee, brown, walnut, cherry, teak, ebony), using a process that always allows the wood veins to remain visible. Ash belongs to the broadleaf family and the semi-hard category of wood. It is pliable, in other words, it bends but does not break. Very light in color, from ivory to almost pink, its fiber is even, fine, straight or flamed.
Many Flexform products have metal structures with a painted finish: epoxy powder-coat or liquid. Powder-coating creates a layer of polymers that anchor very securely to the surface being treated. This type of coating is generally resistant to scrapes and bumps. The chromed finish is, instead, achieved through galvanization with chrome that leaves the surface polished with a mirror effect. Among the available Flexform finishes are: satin-finish, chromed, burnished, black chrome and champagne.
