The Seventies were hallmarked by some extremely innovative designs and saw the birth of many classics that are still popular today. Ingeniously designed seating produced with typical Swiss quality made the de Sede brand well known throughout the world during this period. The DS-51 swivel armchair is one such model: designed in the company’s own workshop and first manufactured in 1971. Today’s rediscovery of the styles of this time have re-awakened contemporary interest in this classic. The skill of craftsmanship that has gone into creating this chair reflects its high aesthetic standards to perfection. The seat and back cushions are all sewn by hand and it is the striking stitching on the outside that makes this armchair so exceptional and gives it its exquisite appearance. Its low seat height and generous dimensions ensure that the DS-51 can fit easily into a modern lounge environment while appearing light and elegant. The high level of comfort is maintained despite its somewhat fragile appearance. Available with or without armrests.
de Sede selects the hides it uses in accordance with the most rigorous quality standards. Only bulls and bullocks raised in the best breeding conditions are deemed good enough for this purpose. DS-Living is a lightly pigmented nappa leather with lightly embossed graining. Between 1.5 and 1.7 mm thick, the leather is extremely hard-wearing, has an easy-care finish and is elegant in appearance.
