Designed for the high-end luxury interiors market, Genevieve Bennett’s bespoke sculpted leather is created using cutting edge techniques, innovative pattern making, beautiful materials and excellent craftsmanship. Top quality leather is embossed, engraved, inlaid, printed and sculpted and can be used to make decorative wall panels, flooring, upholstery or furniture.
Each piece by the London-based designer is made to order and the designs and techniques can be customized and ordered in bespoke sizes and colours. However, there is also a standard range of products available as 12 inch panels in 26 different colours.
Having graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2000, Bennett is inspired by three-dimensional sculptural qualities, surface relief and striking patterns. Her designs draw on a vast range of archive material and influences, including historic ‘Spitalfields’ silk patterns, wood carvings by 17th Century craftsman Grinling Gibbons, advanced paper engineering techniques and Elizabethan armour.
