De-ésse is a modern, light and comfortable easy-chair, with roots in the in the best of Danish cabinetmaker-tradition.
The design is, literally speaking, based on the long, through-going wood-piece, forming the seat and the back-leg. By curving the upper-side, strength in the right place and a comfortable convex seat-shape are both achieved in one simple design-stroke. This graphic character, associating to the legendary Citroën DS from 1955, has given the chair its name.
A clearly readable, transparent construction with coherent, logical and beautiful lines was an important aim, during the design-efforts.
