The DS-717 is the unequivocal expression of simplicity of form and unsurpassed functionality melded smoothly in a unique symbiosis of delight. In addition to the chair – with or without armrests – the same series also includes a barstool and lounge chair. All the chairs follow the same idea from Claudio Bellini, based on his understanding of what the precision mechanics of seating demands of design: the ultimate in comfort! The seat shells of the chairs are unalloyed ergonomic perfection – a rousing success for this innovative designer – while the chromium-plated steel tubing is the non-plus-ultra in shape. In the DS-717, seating becomes an act of sensuousness linked with unparalleled comfort. But seating can only be truly good when – in addition to aspects such as technology, material, ergonomics and tactility # it also explores human momentum and incorporates this as well. The work of Claudio Bellini does so in a manner that is unequalled today, thanks to his conviction that design in the final analysis serves but one purpose: to provide matchless quality # and to do so without compromise!
