Cuero is more than just an innovative design company. It is a way of life and a style consciousness that elevates naturalness and graceful shapes to the role of key design principles. It is also the pleasing feel that has put Cuero leather chairs on the way to becoming modern
Classics Cuero chairs - the birth of an idea
The talent behind Cuero are the two young architects Juan Kurchan and Jorge Ferrari Hardoy, and Antonio Bonet. After the three worked together at the Paris Corbusier Studio for a period in the 1930s, they developed the idea for an entirely new innovative seating concept. As a basis they chose a classic from 1877, the "La Tripolina". It was the ideal starting point for the three of them to design such successful Cuero chairs as thePampa Mariposa Butterfly Chair later. The frame of the chairs was always made of steel, the seat and back were made of leather. The leather came from the famous saddler Cutriani.
Cuero leather chairs - the success of the unconventional
Although the first chairs were able to win several awards, they were never truly successful. This changed after the Second World War, when the designers developed the Butterfly Chair. It is dominated by a vanguard, natural shape. The real success of models such as the Tricorona Butterfly Stool came in the 50s and 60s. Many chairs of the design trio are now popular fixtures in retro interiors. Cuero relaunched the popular classics and introduced them into the diversified design world of the 21st century. This is something for true connoisseurs.
