In partnership with Lineapelle, the biggest international leather trade show, Hyundai Transys will present its vision for future mobility with a color-material-finish (CMF) concept seat model using sustainable leather and other regenerative materials from tanning waste. Under the theme ‘Shift to Regenerative Mobility,’ Hyundai Transys worked closely with Italian leather tanneries, manufacturers and Korean suppliers to visualize the future mobility seat concept.

Hyundai Transys will exhibit in Lineapelle’s innovation section, showcasing sustainably processed, upcycled leather design work. The seat was produced through the re-use of tanning waste from the automotive sector, where discussion about sustainable, ethical leather usage has increased recently.

Before its debut in Milan, the company held a preview event at its HQ on Jan. 26, joined by Steve Yeo, CEO of Hyundai Transys, and H.E. Federico Failla, Ambassador of Italy to the Republic of Korea. Fulvia Bacchi, CEO of Lineapelle and UNIC General Manager, also joined the event online from Italy to take a look at the future of mobility seats and discuss related sustainability efforts.

"The preview event provided us an opportunity to share our expertise and insights on sustainability efforts that have been underway for a long time," said Yeo. "Starting with Lineapelle, Hyundai Transys intends to pursue carbon neutrality in all of its product development processes."

Hyundai Transys is minimizing its environmental impact by reducing waste, transitioning to reusable energy and developing eco-friendly products. Its new CMF concept is an important step toward aligning its product offerings with Hyundai Motor Group’s vision of clean mobility and goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045.

"At Lineapelle, we are committed to promoting sustainable usage of leather through technological innovation," said Bacchi. "Through this collaboration with Hyundai Transys, we see a clear path forward for both the leather and future mobility industries — one where high-quality design and manufacturing can co-exist with ethical sourcing and sustainable practices."

Prior to the exhibition, Hyundai Transys and Lineapelle revealed a teaser video on Hyundai Transys’ website and YouTube channel as well as Lineapelle’s social channels. More details of Hyundai Transys’ exhibition and concept seat model will be gradually revealed.
