Un-Hide: Reframing Luxury is an interactive seating series by Modular by Mensah redefining leather's evolving role in contemporary design. Shifting conventional connotations of a luxury material, leather is re-positioned as a medium for fostering social connections and sharing practices. Drawing parallels between human skin's memory and leather's natural features, the project explores leather's lifecycle and its potential as a sustainable material. Natural features are celebrated through design, materiality and craftsmanship.

Modular by Mensah is founded by British Ghanaian designer Kusheda Mensah. It creates objects and spaces to enhance connections between people.

Unhide: Reframing Luxury is supported by Bridge of Weir Leather and Muirhead.

Part of London Design Festival at the V&A
