Alcove Highback Sofa – Red
Alcove Highback Sofa by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra
The ‘room in a room’ is a concept that Vitra has intensively pursued over many years in collaboration with the designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. The idea of mobile micro-architectural elements has led to a wide variety of designs, among which the Alcove Sofa stands out as one of the most remarkable.
The various Alcove sofas were conceived for open-plan offices, where they provide sheltered, private spaces in busy or hectic surroundings. This makes them a perfect place to withdraw for concentrated work or small meetings.
The Bonell spring core is sheathed in a textile fibre-composite mat and covered with layers of polyurethane foam in different densities to provide excellent comfort. The plush cushions of Alcove Plume are slightly rounded to offer the soft, casual comfort of a Lounge Sofa.
