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.This latest creation for de Sede by Italian designer Antonella Scarpitta is based on a lounge concept. She has designed a cubic sofa that is strictly reduced to the essentials. This transforms her new model into a timeless object for practical use as well as for decoration. Elegant lines, unparalleled seating comfort and a modular concept that makes for a wealth of potential applications are further attractive features of this outstanding sofa.

In addition to its clean-cut form, this design also appeals thanks to its interesting, concealed function: the low rear-sections that are so typical for lounging can be folded upwards if required to provide comfortable back support - for instance, for reading. This unmistakable programme consists of three different sofas, five stools and four supplementary units which make it possible to create a wealth of different combinations - such as corner groups.
