For more than 30 years, Stefan Heiliger has been thinking about sitting. It's an obsession that has lead to many a luxurious lounge chair, including his most recent style the DS-266. Deceptively cosy, it is neither a armchair nor a daybed, but a hybrid style that can flit between the two thanks to slight shifts in bodyweight. It also boasts a curious, sculptural aspect — resembling a clenched fist when upright and an unfurled palm when open.
Materials & Finishes
Furniture that looks good from every angle. That's the Chaplins Promise. Delve into the details here:
The DS 707 armchair has a luxurious foam structure and casual-fitting upholstery. Small wrinkles may develop over time — contributing to the piece's unique aesthetic value. The backrest can be adjusted manually to ensure different lounging positions. It is sold with glides for both hard and soft coverings.
The upholstery is available online in Re-Wool Fabric (45% new wool, 45% recycled wool, 10% nylon) or a selection of plush Swiss leathers. You can find out more about each option below:
Re-wool Fabric: Re-wool is one of the eco-fabrics in the De Sede collection. It has an extraordinary depth of colour and, from a distance, appears to have a smooth, uniform surface. Look closely, however, and you’ll noticed a lively nuanced play of light and dark colour variations that lend it its signature charm.
Living Leather: The Living leather collection is lightly pigmented with a gently embossed grain pattern. Alongside the usual elegance, it also very practical — less sensitive to humidity, spots & light exposure thanks to an easy-care finish.
Select Leather: Select is a Nappa leather with a light pigment. Meticulous processing preserves the natural quality of the leather with a characteristic pattern of creases, grains and pores. After tanning, it is dyed with a special finish to maintain the natural aura while also offering improved protection. It undergoes visible ageing, lending it an endearing patina.
