This set of side tables explores an ancient chemical colouring technique in which a Vinegaroon liquid, white wine vinegar and steel, reacts with the tannin inside the leather.Originally this 2000 year old technique was used to dye leather black. However my experiments with subtle changes in the Vinegaroon concentration against the tanning recipe for the leather has resulted in unexpected colour variations. In addition to the leather, Vinagaroon reacts with oak wood too, to create a similar colouring effect unifying all elements of the design. The wooden table top rests on a wet formed structure of 5mm thick leather.
