Sørensen Leather Launches TERRA in Collaboration with Norm Architects


As a renowned global brand with some of the most high-end, sought-after sustainable leather in the world, Sørensen Leather is the exclusive source of leather for iconic designs found in museums, galleries and private collections around the globe. Continuously working on new concepts and passionate about encouraging people to explore the creative possibilities of leather beyond the typical or traditional, for this year’s 3daysofdesign in Copenhagen, Sørensen Leather presented an exhibition at Audo House, curated and designed by Norm Architects and stylist Pernille Vest. They also launched TERRA, a unique new leather collection developed in collaboration with Norm Architects, inspired by the Earth and its natural materials — from the softness of sand, the depths of soil and the richness of clay.

TERRA is an incredibly soft aniline leather with a silk-matt surface with a subtle shine and a velvety tactile feel that evokes one’s senses. The amazing array of rich hues ranges from beautiful shades of green and yellow to bordeaux and brown nuances that create a gorgeous nature-inspired colour scheme, curated by Norm Architects. Clay, sand and ochre combined with silt and soil evoke images of sandy deserts and rocky landscapes. Each hide is truly unique with beautiful natural markings. Over time, the leather will become smoother and shinier, gaining a natural patina that will add both character and authenticity to the leather.

The joint exhibition featured beautiful works and ceramic pieces by six artists: Katrine Blinkenberg, Louise Machholm Madsen, Naja Utzon Popov, Pia Hutters, Ole Victor and Longfei Wang (alias Tōsei). Reflecting the colour scheme of TERRA’s earthy tones, the ceramic surfaces of the works, carefully selected by Pernille Vest, create an interplay with the tactility of the leather wall dividers. Presented in varying heights and colours from the TERRA collection, with additional materials provided by Dinesen, the exhibition delivered an exquisite, multi-sensory experience.
