De Sede DS-450/02 Sofa in Petrol Upholstery by Thomas Althaus

About the Item

A miracle of brilliant technical inspiration Designer Thomas Althaus updated the original developed by Reto Frigg in 1985, lovingly perfecting it with sophisticated technology, down to the tiniest details. An improved mechanism and a reinterpreted look add fresh momentum to this futuristic quick-change artist. German designer Thomas Althaus demonstrates creative versatility in this reduction to the bare essentials: the furniture world does not need all sorts of bric-a-brac and frills; it needs functional pieces that serve the cause at hand. The DS-450 sofa adapts perfectly to a very wide variety of furnishing styles and contributes to a perfect overall picture. Like DS-490, the DS-450 also impresses with its very simple handling that can be used to change the function of the piece of furniture. The backrest elements can be adjusted individually and set backwards at different tilting angles. The soft upholstery elements that end in fold-up armrests on the sides, inviting people not just to sit but also to lift off – thanks to sophisticated technology, all it takes is two flicks of the wrist to convert DS-450 into a recliner. No wonder this model has become a bestseller for our Swiss manufacture in a very short period of time. Additional information: Material: Leather Category: Select - Petrol 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. Living unites practical considerations with a high aesthetic. Dimensions: 233 W x 169 D x 97 H cm Seat height 43 cm Available in other upholstery options: Living and coloral.

    By De Sede
    Located in Brooklyn, NY
    Feet up and just unwind, our DS-80 relocates sleep to the daytime hours, the time when we are supposed to be active and getting things done. Its subtle appearance reminds us to take a relaxing break from our hectic everyday lives once in a while, and that’s certainly nothing to be ashamed of. The modest dimensions of the daybed are a benefit here, as they gently force you to spend some time on your own. Part of the basic furnishings of any upscale interior in the 1920s, the flat daybed has been enjoying a Renaissance for several years now. Our daybed caused a stir more than 30 years ago, with its elaborate patchwork processing and freely place able back cushions. This timeless Classic has now been gently updated. It is available both as a daybed and as a small lounge sofa, too. The daybed doubles as a lounge sofa The daybed DS-80 has established itself as a timeless Classic by De Sede ever since it was launched in 1969: to this day, the model is a paradigm of high-class leather manufacture and popular all-over the world. To be honest, we’re not quite sure which we like better: the newly produced models or the 50-year-old sculptures...
