Contemporary refinement and production expertise guide the action of de Sede, a Swiss company engaged in the marketing of leather armchairs and sofas. A production that looks to the most modern trends without neglecting, however, the attention to detail typical of traditional craftsmanship. From this encounter between past and present, comfortable and elegant solutions are born, which conquer with their simplicity. The company's primary objective, in fact, is to create furniture and complements that satisfy the customer not only at the time of purchase, but also over the years, furniture that in some cases become true icons of design, such as DS-600, a modular leather sofa, which for over 45 years has represented the De Sede style in the world and has also earned a place in the Guinness Book of Records for the longest sofa configuration in the world!

De Sede: leather furniture since 1965

The company's history begins in a small workshop in Klingnau, Switzerland. In 1965, the family-run business took the name de Sede, and began to register its first commercial successes. The proposal of handmade chairs and leather sofas and armchairs is immediately appreciated, and the arrival of more and more elegant models only increases the reputation of the brand. Since the 1980s, collaborations with designers from all over Europe, such as Reto Rigg, Santiago Calatrava and Mathias Hoffman, have multiplied. Today, de Sede is a mature entrepreneurial reality that employs over 140 workers and markets furniture in more than 40 countries around the world, from the United States to Russia, not forgetting the Arab markets and emerging countries. The opening, in 2018, of a shop inside the prestigious Harrods stores in London marks the definitive consecration of a company that, despite its successes, remains firmly tied to its artisan philosophy.

The design of de Sede among sofas, armchairs and furniture

The commercial proposal of de Sede follows the various dimensions of design furniture: from the sleeping area to offices, restaurants and public places. The success of the company is certified by the numerous appreciations that the markets have reserved for its products. The DS-1000 chaise longue, designed by Ulrich Kössl, is one of the company's flagship products. Its particular tubular structure is flanked by soft leather cushions. A combination that won the German Design Award in 2019. And it is precisely the use of leather upholstery that is the common denominator of de Sede's offer. All this is evident when you consider the proposal dedicated to interior design. From elegant armchairs with armrests to poufs, or sofas. Among the sofas, the DS-840 model, made in collaboration with Geckeler Michels, has a solid structure to support the upholstered seats. The classic leather upholstery gives the elegance typical of Swiss company products. There's no shortage of sleeping area options. DS-1155, for example, offers all the comfort of a fully upholstered headboard embellished with leather inserts.
Contract furniture is another of de Sede's areas of action. The coffee table DS-612, designed by Mario Ferrarini, is made of composite material, and thanks to the different colours and heights it is able to adapt to the most varied contexts. The DS-777 table, by Bruno Fattorini, on the other hand, offers a geometric and rigid interpretation of the worktop, enriched with elements in marble powder and metal fragments. The proposals related to the seatings are interesting. Among them, the DS-1051 waiting chair stands out, a new version of the DS-51 model designed in 1971. A creation that is still current today thanks to the hand stitching of the seat and backrest, a shining example of the craftsmanship of de Sede products.

Tailor-made chairs, furniture and accessories: de Sede's philosophy

Respect for the raw material is the basis of every de Sede production. The company's leather creations are designed and then handcrafted by experienced craftsmen, who constantly renew the long tradition of the Swiss brand. All this is the secret of the success of the business, which, without forgetting to look at technical innovations, chooses to remain faithful to its roots. This artisan dimension permeates not only de Sede's chairs and furniture, but also the whole relationship with customers. The careful repair service, which aims to restore the original beauty of armchairs and sofas, stands out in this area. This is because every product tells a story, brings with it inspirations and suggestions that are impossible to replace. In an era devoted to ever faster and more impersonal consumption, de Sede chooses to go the other way. The maintenance of the products, aimed at extending their useful life, is accompanied by custom-made production. Once again, the Swiss company is rebelling against the logic of mass production, offering a complete service of creating customized sofas, chairs and complements. In this way, every production becomes truly original, as well as of excellent quality. ... More ... less
