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.

About The Designer – Roberto Lazzeroni
Roberto Lazzeroni, born in Pisa, began his professional life with the study of art and architecture in Florence and the interests he developed during his training, in particular in the conceptual art and radical design movements. In the early 1980s, Lazzeroni made his professional debut with a series of important works in the field of “interior architecture” that immediately attracted attention and were published in Italian and foreign periodicals. Lazzeroni considers “interior architecture” to be a necessary discipline, a sort of “training field” in which to glean varied experience in materials, techniques, and problems inherent to design in the home. A fundamental step for anyone approaching the world of product design. Receptive to the history of design and its “signs,” with a personal stylistic flair that Lazzeroni spontaneously defines as “sentimental design.” It is in fact easy even for the non-expert eye to sense the link between past and future in Roberto Lazzeroni’s projects: his is design that does not parade industrial geometries, but neither does it embody frivolous affectations of aestheticism; it gives objects their correct places in history, in tradition, in an individual and collective autobiography. Lazzeroni’s peculiar understanding of design led him to specialize in concept development: the ideas underlying the creation of new trademarks.
