Knowing What is Missing

DS-21 brings together the ease and familiarity of a seating area with the grandeur of high feet.
A new combination, it represents the maturing of a typology previously only found in lounges. The DS-21 has the appearance of a floating sculpture, an elevated seating area, and can be used in both private and semi-public spaces.
The design created by architect and designer Stephan Hürlemann for de Sede blends into any environment, though its proportions have a new, fresh appearance. The sofa’s architectural structure stems from a metal frame that surrounds the individual cushions and appears to carry them with ease. The more luxurious elements counterbalance the starkness of the frame. They are designed as modules which can be rearranged.
DS-21 is available in various cushion combinations, with leather or fabric upholstery, and in three different frame widths with black or chrome-plated metal feet. A chair completes the seating line.
The DS-21 family is complemented by coffee tables and side tables with glass plates in a range of different designs. The tables’ architectural design is based on the same lateral piping as the metal frame in the sofa.
