The OPEN CIRCLE LAB® is both a physical development facility located in the Netherlands, and a design philosophy that drives leather innovation. An inner-circle of progressive designers and brands were quietly invited to imagine the unimaginable and challenge our tanning technicians to create leathers that designers could once only dream about.
We believe it is an important part of our responsibility to inspire product-designers with the ever-evolving possibilities of leather itself.
Occurring in our main tanning facility in The Netherlands, our Hot Shop events bring together creatives, developers, specifies and merchandisers.
