'DS-60' by Gordon Guilaumier for de Sede

After the successful launch of the new armchair and side table by Philippe Bestenheider at this year’s imm cologne the Swiss manufacturer de Sede convinces with another novelty designed by Milano based Gordon Guilaumier.

“The purist form of a boomerang, with its daring yet elegant lines, was the inspiration behind my preliminary concept for the DS-60″, the designer explains.

The resulting cantilevered stainless steel structure creates a light appearance.

Cantilever chairs have always occupied a privileged position in modern design history. It is their visual lightness, their relative lack of materiality (look Ma, no legs!), which made them such a fascination for Bauhaus greats Marcel Breuer, Mart Stam and Mies van der Rohe. Swiss manufacturer de Sede has recently reissued two iconic cantilevers from the late 1950s, the originals of which have long been sought after by collectors.

Designed by Robert Haussmann, ‘RH 304′ (which was used as conference seating at UNESCO’s Paris headquarters) and ‘RH 305′ have been modified slightly for re-edition, their upholstery now slimmer than before. The seat height on ‘RH 305′ has also been adjusted. Otherwise, their silhouettes remain the same.
