Oyster Light, a light and hanging shell that it defines through the same elements that form it: material and shape. Two sheets of continuous saddle leather, pressed, ribbed, wisely worked take the concave and convexo shapes, and together jointed like a sandwich bring Oyster Light a solid and steady shell. It surprises the very light compactness generated by the technique and the own characteristics of the material, the saddle leather, bring Oyster Light stretched and gristly from the unexpected flexibility to the touch.


The armchair is formed by two sheets of saddle leather formed for a long time in special mould; these sheets are afterwards glued one to the other after having interposed an aluminium frame made through a sand casting process. The base is a s chromed steel rod frame.
