The DS600, also known as the Tatzelwurm, Snake or ‘das Nonstop-Sofa,’ is a masterpiece in the world of sofas. This version consisting of 22 elements comes with rare chestnut leather and a dark brown felt back, and it’s in fantastic original condition, showing a gentle aging process but no damaging, cracks or tears.


The DS600 is a remarkable and trough modular system, made up of separate armchair elements that offer ultimate comfort. With a combination of down lining and leather upholstery, it provides an unbeatable lounging experience. You can easily connect the elements to one another with a plug-in hinge.


De Sede traces its roots back to a small saddler’s workshop in Klingnau, Switzerland. Skilled craftsmen dedicated themselves to transforming high-quality leather into exceptional seating furniture. With years of experience and hard work, they created handcrafted leather pieces of remarkable quality. In 1965, the family-owned business transitioned into a joint-stock company known as de Sede AG while staying true to their original principles. The company experienced rapid growth from that point onward.
