Alcove Highback Sofa 2006

DesignReasons sells Vitra sofas. The central idea behind the Alcove Sofa is that a sofa can be much more than just a piece of furniture. This is especially true of the Alcove Highback Sofa, whose side and back panels reach an exceptional height. When someone sits down on the Alcove Highback, they find themselves in a secluded space. Thanks to the outstanding acoustic qualities of the Alcove Highback Sofa and its function as a visual screen, it creates a peaceful oasis — especially in spacious living areas. This effect is even more pronounced when two sofas are positioned face to face, thereby defining a room within a room.
The Alcove Highback Sofas all have high side and back panels and are more than just pieces of furniture: Sitting in one of these sofas is like being in a space of one’s own, hardly visible to others and protected from surrounding office noises.
Concentrating on work tasks
The integrated writing shelf, the storage space beneath it and the ability to connect cables make Alcove Work a flexible place to retreat to for concentrating on individual work in an open-plan office.
Positioned opposite each other, two Alcove Highback Sofas create a ”meeting room“ – without the need for any permanent components – that can be moved at any time. With a wide selection of colours and covers available, the Alcove Highback Sofas can easily be integrated into existing office environments.
