De Sede DS-51 Chair in Black Upholstery by Antonella Scarpitta

US$5,480per item

About

The DS-51 swivel armchair helped establish De Sede’s worldwide reputation for Swiss hand craftsmanship and production of the highest quality. Optionally available with or without armrests, this design Classic guarantees high comfort and convenience despite its filigree appearance and blends into any interior with its timeless esthetics. The low seat height and generous proportions help create an extravagant loung effect. That tingling feeling during manu-facture is the same today – especially with DS-51, the swivel armchair De Sede launched in the 1970s. Crafted from a single piece of leather, the seat and back are elaborately handstitched with needle and thread; the cross-stitching on the side sections, also applied by hand, lends the armchair its exquisite, timeless elegance and highlights its exclusive appearance: an anatomically shaped basic structure, surprising for its curved lightness – stunning and simply everlastingly perfect. Additional information: Material: Leather Category: Select - Black Type: Nappa leather, lighty pigmented Thickness: 1.2 to 1.4 mm Characteristics: Meticulous processing preserves the natural quality – with a characteristic pattern of creases, grain and pores. After tanning, it is dyed with a special finish to maintain the natural aura while also offering improved protection. It undergoes visible ageing, lending it an endearing patina. Dimensions: 59 W x 90 D x 87 H cm Seat height: 38 cm Available in other upholstery options: Living, touch, naturale, club, coloral, craft, velour Available in other option: 27° Active relax.

About the Manufacturer

De Sede

A de Sede piece lends a strong personality to the room it occupies. One of the world’s most respected furniture design houses, de Sede’s quality Swiss craftsmanship has its foundation in a long history of making expertly designed saddles. Founded in 1965 to build on a successful family-run saddler’s workshop in Klingnau, Switzerland, de Sede now is a leading manufacturer of leather goods and furniture, including sofas, chairs and beds.At the core of de Sede’s philosophy is a reverence for the complexity and beauty of handcrafted furniture in an age when mass-produced objects are the norm. Over the years, the atelier has built a name for itself in its modular furniture pieces, which are made using the highest quality leather upholstery. The sleek, elegant pieces incorporate functionality with beauty. Amongst their best-selling designs is the DS-600 introduced in 1972. Also known as the Non Stop sofa, it is a sensually curved, snaking modular sofa whose individual pieces can be zipped together to create multiple variations and arcs.De Sede has collaborated with some of the world's finest design minds, enhancing the prestige and individuality of their products. Designers like Santiago Calatrava, Antonella Scarpitta, Stephan Hürlemann, Gordon Guillaumier and Philippe Malouin have all created pieces with the atelier. Ubald Klug’s 1974 DS-1025, also known as the Terrazza sofa, is an enduring favorite with its cascading levels of leather. In 2017, de Sede expanded its product line to include high-quality leather handbags, which are as thoughtfully designed and beautifully crafted as its furniture. De Sede AG is now part of the Volare Group AG and continues to handcraft its fine furniture and other goods from its factory in Klingnau.Find authentic de Sede seating, tables and decorative objects today on 1stDibs.
