Based on de Sede’s acclaimed 90-degree swivel function, the DS-480 model reflects a sporty new design concept that integrates adjustable new side-section, knee-angle and headrest features to make relaxed lounging an even greater pleasure. The exceptional versatility of the DS-480 sofa enables it to be converted with two simple movements into a double armchair that is ideal for relaxing thanks to back and leg rests that are infinitely adjustable at the touch of a button to ensure the perfect position for everyone. When creating this model, internationally renowned Swiss designer Alfredo Häberli drew his inspiration from the aesthetic lines of classic sports cars. This is evident both in the elegant lightness of the stainless steel base, which sweeps forward with an exciting athletic tension, as well as in the details of its elaborate leatherwork: precise seams, perforated side surfaces highlighted with contrasting colours and wing-like adjustable armrests. The sofa’s great appeal lies not merely in its wealth of variety and laid-back appearance, but also in its premium-quality supple leather and exceptional seating comfort.
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.
