De Sede KT-221 Three-Seat Sofa in Black Upholstery by Kurt Thut

$20,790per item

About

With the KT-221, De Sede launches another re-edition Classic from Swiss design - one of whose founding members was Kurt Thut. Good design, timelessness and quality are the attributes to which Thut paid the greatest attention in his creative processes. With the KT-221 models, he has succeeded in creating a factual, functional design of an iconographic, architectural construction by transferring steel construction to furniture structures down to the smallest detail. Like his Swiss companions Robert Haussmann or Hans Eichenberger, Kurt Thut masterfully transfers his interpretation of steel furniture into the future. Striking, aesthetically consistent product family of armchairs, sofas, benches and tables for a wide range of scenarios. Seat and back cushions with buttoning. Primarily for furnishing lobbies and waiting areas, but also in the living area. Additional information: Material: Leather Category: Select - Black Type: Nappa leather, lightly 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: 201 W x 75 D x 78 H cm Seat height 44 cm Available in other upholstery options: Living, touch, coloral, naturale.

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.
