Allora Chosen a Finalist in HD Awards

Eccelente! Cortina Leathers is incredibly honored that Allora, our newest leather collection, was chosen as a finalist in Hospitality Design’s 18th annual awards for design excellence in the Textiles + Fabrics category. We had an amazing evening in New York on June 7th celebrating at the awards ceremony with many extraordinary finalists from around the world. Thank you to Hospitality Design and all the judges for recognizing a natural leather as one of the best textiles and especially for choosing Allora, an exceptional Italian leather which exudes both beauty and performance. This honor was only possible due to Virginia Langley’s inspiring design and gorgeous color story, and we are grateful for the team at Crypton® for our enduring 14-year partnership. Together we have proven that beauty is no accident.

Jack Prause, President of Cortina Leathers, says, “We are thrilled that the judges at Hospitality Design recognized the uniqueness of Allora, a modern, elegant and high-performance leather suitable for interiors everywhere.”

Biophilic Design

Biophilia means the connection between us and the natural world and how this connection influences and contributes towards health and productivity for us in both home and the workplace.

Biophilic Design

Leather is a perfect product for biophilic design, being completely natural to the environment and our health. It is long lasting and  has a remarkable quality that holds a distinctive class of superiority.

Biophilic design is a consciousness toward incorporating the natural world into our technologically advanced world. This trend helps connect mankind to their inherent attachment with nature and the well-being received when working in these more natural and organic filled environments that combine both nature and technology in our contemporary lifestyles. Applications of organics, light, air, land, water and plants are reflected in interiors to fulfill the needed connection to have nature as part of our daily life.

These leathers selected from Cortina's collections beautifully represent nature in color and textures. Each supports biophilic design in a unique way- from luminescent hues and pure textural dimension, to natural grain and exquisite quality.
