Pet is the product of material and theroretical research into the relationship between man and product. The premise is that in time – when the leather absorbs the owner’s movements and lifestyle – Pet will become more valuable to the owner.

Pet is a functional desk with well-arranged storage space. When not in use the lid can be closed, and you can see traces and bumps from what is hidden inside. The leather has a great ability to patina and to expand, and it is utilized to make the best experience for the user to form the product in time. When new, PET is an industrially produced product, in time it will transform and get its own look and character.
