Shell Dining Chair with a soft leather upholstery designed by Michael Dreeben. The collaboration with the most recognised Danish leather supplier, Sorensen Leathers, is bringing a new softness and tactility to the Mater collection. Ultra (previously known as Tango) is a pigmented leather, suitable for everyday use, that is durable, easy to maintain and resists stains. A layer of foam is making the seating of the chair a more comfortable and soft experience.

After completing an MFA in sculpture at the University of Chicago, MICHAEL W. DREEBEN pursued apprenticeships with master woodworkers and was later awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to study traditional craft and woodworking in Rajasthan State in North India. Upon returning from India, he continued to pursue a range of design interests, and co-founded and operated Accuslab, LLC, which supplied stock lines of concrete furniture and architectural components to several large national retailers. His work reflects sculptural sensibility, thoughtful engagement with material, and wide ranging design and production experience.
