Essential elements

Wednesday, 6 July 2011

We've made a delicious discovery ..... an 'archive' button on Love Vintage Furniture - which means lots of extra pages of yummy yumminess to peruse.  There are some great pieces to cast one's eye over, but for us the rare and iconic DS-1025 designed by Ulbald Klug for de Sede in 1972 was just too special to pass up.

The basis of the DS-1025 is two ingenious elements which have been constructed with eminent craftsmanship into terrace-like forms, with the left and right elements varying in width and depth - imitating tapering steps.  Together they constitute a two-seater, a pyramid or a small range of upholstered hillocks, depending on the number of elements.  And with the addition of extra elements, it is possible to create seating groups whose diversity is limited only by one's imagination.

We'll take a couple of hillocks please!

  1. It's quite nice to see this again, have to say it was THE most comfortable sofa ever! We sold this to a guy in Belgium last year, doubt we will ever get it again. DeSede still make it though but it's a scary 12,000 euros each element!!

  2. That looks like something you'd want to sink into an never get up!

  3. I have these sofas if anyone is interested
