De Sede DS-102 Armchair in Snow Upholstery by Mathias Hoffmann

$7,190per item

About

A series with an eye-catching, core leather lacing. This model series’ softly upholstered shell with its extremely comfortable cushions creates a island in the living space. Whether as a sofa, armchair or stool, it invites to relax and to dream. Available as a recamier sofa and with contours extending to the left or right at the owner’s option, the DS-102 series conveys modern generosity and hospitality. The eye-catching, criss-cross core leather lacing accentuates the appeal of the form. This is about the eternal question between the sexes: who knows better? Who’s right? At de Sede, we know the answer: women! And the backstory goes like this: when launched in 1997, DS-102 was polarizing at its first in-house presentation. Some were totally excited, and others were skeptical. On that very day, an important dealer came to visit – apparently the balance of power, as the retail partner added his vote to the opposition: “There’s no way anyone’s going to buy something like that!” But his wife took a completely different view: she loved the extraordinarily round and feminine form of the piece of furniture. Her persuasion turned her husband around, too, and he became convinced of the exclusive language of design, changed his mind and advocated the launch of the unmistakable DS-102, which has retained its soft and embracing form to this day: sofa, armchair and stool, all made from the same mold. Additional information: Material: Leather Category: Select - Snow Type: Nappa leather, lighty pigmented Thickness: 1.2 to 1.4 mm Characteristics: Elegant in appearance, particularly durable, less sensitive to humidity, spots and light exposure thanks to an easy-care finish.

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.
