Vitra’s products and concepts are developed in an intensive design process, which brings together their engineering excellence with the creative genius of leading international designers. Their goal is to create interiors, furniture and accessories that are functional and inspiring. Longevity of materials, construction and aesthetics is our leading principle, as demonstrated by their Classics – many in continuous production since the 1950s.
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec add the Alcove Sofa to the Alcove collection. The design is a low slung sofa with an emphasis on casual comfort.
This design takes inspiration from the concept that a sofa can go beyond being a piece of furniture and become a room within a room. With comfortable seat and backrest upholstery and the high, flexible side and back panels, the design creates a sheltered niche of privacy, a place of retreat. The thick, plush look of the seat cushions is matched by their superlative comfort. Though softly padded, they provide adequate support so as to not sit too deeply. Combined with the quilted side and back panels – a hallmark feature of the entire Alcove family – and the pointed loose cushions, a cosy and relaxing nest is created.
