Ever since she created her DS-7 and DS-5 models, Antonella Scarpitta's name has stood for design that simply will not countenance the commonplace. In form and content, this new sofa follows on from the ideas behind her DS-5 and bears all the hallmarks of a design masterpiece, incorporating the inspiration of seeking aesthetic appeal in elegant simplicity. Its overwhelming attraction springs from a daring interplay of materials that harmoniously melds the steel geometry of its frame with the superlative smoothness of the leather upholstery. With its backrest slightly higher than in the DS-5, Antonella Scarpitta's new creation is the epitome of genuine excellence. Her inimitable design makes everything visible - an entire grammar of unencumbered form and understated elegance. The DS-4 is a clear affirmation by the designer of her commitment to plumb the depths of a particular style. Her skill lies not in continually producing different shapes and forms or flaunting a vast array of materials, but in her fundamental belief that furniture should be endowed with a clear identity. It is this concept that makes the seating Antonella Scarpitta creates so sublimely unique.
