Pli Dual Rotation Multi-Functional Leather Armchair by FSM

$6,040per item

About

FSM Pli chair by De Sede. A miracle of rotation. The chair Pli consists of two armchair parts, each rotating about its own axis. Thanks to the option of Dual rotation the armchair can fulfill a variety of functions and surprises the person seated with unimagined flexibility. Depending on how the two chair parts are rotated relative to one another, the armchair can be used with an armrest, a footrest or an intelligent shelf. The needs and demands of the person seated are virtually limitless. Designer Stefan Heiliger’s basic IDEA was to create a functional armchair that can be operated differently. Previous functional armchairs had a footrest that could be pulled up or an armrest that could be folded up individually. Pli can do without all this. This smart swivel armchair revolutionarily fulfills the arm- or footrest functions with the correct pivot point. The design of the dynamic seating object looks stately. This is how Pli lends a tasteful touch of extravagance to the commercial and residential settings alike. Details: Standard configuration: Round base and column coated in matte black with a fine texture. Upholstery and assembly: Seat, back and footrest: supporting metal structure, high bulk density molded foam. Seat and back with comfort upholstery, back with integrated lumbar support. Seat comfort: Ergonomically designed seat with soft upholstery. Function: Footrest and armchair can be rotated 360° independently of one another. Substructure: Round base and column coated in matte black with a fine texture. Pearl-gloss chrome-plated or coated in different color on request for a surcharge. Double-shell steel structure with closed round base. Synthetic slide-on glides also supplied. Note: The seat and back are loosely covered. Wrinkling inevitable through use. Avoid placing an excessive load on the footrest. The maximum load for the armchair is 120 kg, 60 kg for the back and the 30 kg for the footrest.

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.
