Philippe Bestenheider has designed a hexagonal coffee table DS-9046 for Swiss furniture company de Sede. The simple coffee table is made of chrome and leather. Following is some information by de Sede, “When designing the DS-9046 side table, Philippe Bestenheider explored the creative possibilities offered by working with full-grain leather.
Starting with the leather’s agreeable surface texture, of the kind familiar from old writing desks, the Swiss designer called upon first-class workmanship, devotion to detail and the finishing skills of the Arts and Crafts movement to develop a small yet supremely elegant table in which smooth premium-quality full-grain leather is used not only to cover the hexagonal tabletop, but also to sheathe the three chromium steel legs.
The cladding of these merges smoothly into the custom-tailored and precisely-crafted woven work that gives this striking side table its slim profile and airy looks. This ensures that the DS-9046 makes an eye-catching addition to every environment. The table is available in three shades of leather, while the chromium steel legs come in two colours.”
