Like a new grammatical declension in the idiom of design, the lines of the DS 256 from the de Sede Design Team forge an organic whole. It represents a purity of concept, an armchair that appears cast in a single stroke. With its one-piece upholstery, the chair exudes an unbearable lightness of being: its edges and curved sections strikingly underscored by the lapped seams. The unpretentious subframe with its discreetly flowing circular aluminium base-plate merges smoothly into the design of the armchair. Its tilt mechanism, height adjustment and comfortable angle of inclination give the DS 256 all the classic qualities of a handmade shoe from a master-cobbler’s last: it ensures an absolutely perfect fit. Its soaring armrests mirror the rhythmic wing beat of a flamingo. Sitting in this armchair, you rise effortlessly above the irksome tug of bourgeois gravity. It challenges us to reconsider the rigid concepts of form and function.
