DS-490 Sofa by De Sede

About

DS-490 sofa by De Sede Design: Thomas Althaus Dimensions: D 72 x W 240 x H 104 cm Materials: metal, birch plywood, leather Prices may change according to the chosen materials and size. A straight backrest becomes a curved silhouette With two flicks of the wrist, DS-490 can be converted into a double recliner. The seat units with elaborately stitched upholstery offer supple comfort and create a contrast to the precisely contoured seat shape and the mechanism hidden underneath. The two seating elements lie on thin platforms that can be rotated independently of each other by 90°; the sofa with modern seat depth thus becomes a recliner for relaxing. Independently of the seating elements, the two backrests are also individually adjustable. This makes the seat depth and the back height easy to individualize. De Sede has its origins in a small but skilled saddler's workshop in Klingnau, Switzerland. The craftsmen there committed themselves to transforming the best possible leather into seating furniture. Their years of experience and diligence enabled them to create handcrafted leather furniture of singular quality. In 1965, the family-run business became a joint-stock company called De Sede AG, but remained faithful to their original guiding principles. The company developed rapidly from this moment onwards: top designers of international caliber were brought on board to create seating furniture, additional manufacturing facilities were opened, and an international distribution network was established. Sophisticated designs that skillfully integrate traditional and precise Swiss workmanship swiftly gained the brand an international reputation. Today, De Sede AG presents itself as a leading manufacturer of exclusive leather furniture. Out of the original small workshop, a company has emerged that employs over 110 people and distributes furniture in more than 69 countries, including the United States and Russia, the GCC countries, and even emerging markets such as China and Brazil.
