Straight has with Stain found a brand new perspective to the use of a coaster where they with a conscious choice of materials allow the product to maintain spots and stains in a natural way and create unique designs as it is used.
The coasters are made of natural-colored nubuckleather from Tärnsjö, the pelt that resembles suede is trimmed with MDF for stability and a well-layered form. The combination of the two materials creates an interesting texture with the thin dimensions creates a slim impression.The texture of the leather allows a spilled stain to be preserved in the material and a unique pattern is created that is not like any other, the patterns tell a story about the use and user of the coaster.
The idea of Stain is based in unwanted coffee stains. Instead of trying to avoid spots, we chose to let the stains become a part of the product and create its character as it is used.
