Pair of Terrazza Sofas by Ubald Klug for De Sede, Switzerland, 1973

About the Item

Terrazza Sofa "DS-1025" by Ubald Klug for the Swiss firm De Sede.  It was produced in 1973, this period corresponds to the beginning of Ubald Klug's career as an interior architect and designer. He proposed this project to the firm which accepted on one condition, that it be in leather. For this model, the designer drew his inspiration directly from the mountainous reliefs of the Alps, shaped by the passage of cows in its regions, forming long plateaus following one another on different levels.  This piece was critically panned in its early days, but with its atypical design it has become a design icon.  It is still in production today. Its structure consists of an assembly of 7 foam-filled cushions of different widths and depths upholstered in brown leather, all mounted on a plywood frame with a rectangular base. The leather and the structure are original. In very good condition, patina consistent with age and use.
