Design studio and manufacturing workshop
Leather craftsmanship with a multidisciplinary approach.
Niyona designs and shapes leather pieces created as part of exclusive series
for brands, designers, artists, fine dining restaurants and (interior) architects.
An idea, a sketch, an object, a place, an identity…while each project request begins in a different place,
the end purpose is, without exception, to translate a vision that matches the description of the commissioner.
In Vein Kurozan / Ben Storms
Part of the Ben Storms collection, In Vein Kurozan is a special edition made in collaboration with our studio. The straps are made of Kurozan leather, a precious leather obtained by tanning and lacquering Japanese Kuroge Wagyu hides. It results in an elegant black finish with a remarkable texture that is also known as ‘diamond leather’.
MANIERA 21 – Bernard Dubois & Isaac Reina
MANIERA 21 is about twos: two designers, two practices, two materials, two craft firms, two ways of seeing. The edition shows a joint project by the Brussels-based architect Bernard Dubois and the Paris-based designer Isaac Reina.
Global Warming 1.77 / Restaurant FRED
« There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in » sung the late Leonard Cohen. That crack is what this piece is about. This (de)composition represents movement, speed, the dynamic of materials. The dark leather and the shining gold illustrate the hopeful chaos, the beautiful fragmentation of the world we live in.
Purple Rain / NIYONA
Our new women’s collection, Purple Rain, combines a practical but also softer universe. The heart of this collection is bound to a set of personal anecdotes reminding us of the happiness that comes from the most essential things in life and the need for self-expression.
Urban Explorer / NIYONA
The heart of this men’s collection, Urban Explorer, is addressed to all city men with sensitivity for design, object qualities and who loves adventure, crafts and authentic products. It’s a smart adventurer who dares to assert his style. NIYONA offers for him a bag, the Messenger and a Toolbag.
