Auto Interior – Seating Design using Mass Perforation

February 10, 2014 Leave a comment

Leather Perforation – Auto Interior Seating

Perforation in fashion leather has been around for some time.

“Either machine punched or laser cut, perforation infuses sex appeal to your look. Since the sporty vibe prevails in every trend, there are no second thoughts in investing in a perforated piece. It reveals some and hides some and creates mystery!…………If you are a leather lover, the perforated trend is for you. It will also be easier and breathable for you to wear perforated leather during sultry months, besides it being a great alternative to plain leather” FashionMyntra.com

Perforated leather in auto seating is currently a mix of fashion style and functionality, as the mass perforation allows for a more effective heating and cooling system. Car companies even have their own brand of perforation.

The latest trends in luxury auto interior design suggests perforations will be used more extensively to reflect style and branding, and even logos at the luxury end of the market (similar to the Michael Kors MK handbag logo above)

An interesting new seating design was introduction at the recent 2014 Detroit Motor Show in the new sports coupe RC F from Lexus.

“With spirited driving in mind, Lexus interior designers give the RC F an elliptical cross-section thick-grip steering wheel and high-back seats. The seats are constructed with an integrated foaming technique, which Lexus claims keeps seat trim taut and gives good support to the driver. In pictures released ahead of the car’s debut here, a unique stitching pattern can be seen on ivory leather seat cushions”.WardsAuto

Note the perforation in the Lexus seating is not in the sewing line, this perforation design was cut using perforation die developed by Ontario Die International business unit in the Czech Republic.
