Vitra Alcove Sofa
Ronan & Erwan Brouroullec, 2006/2008
A sofa can go beyond being merely a piece of furniture and become a room of its own within a room. This was the idea that prompted Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to design Alcove Sofa. With its unusually soft seat and backrest upholstery, as well as the high, flexible side and back panels, Alcove Sofa creates the frame for such a comfy, safe and secure world, a place for relaxed withdrawal from the hustle and bustle of life: Two people can stretch out and sit opposite each other, leaning leisurely back against the side walls, and if required the sofa also provide sufficient space for a third person. Alcove Sofa combines the contrasting qualities of a comfortable secluded relaxation area with an open invitation to enter and sit down.
