Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, 2006. 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 soft seat and backrest upholstery, as well as the high, flexible side and back panels, Alcove Sofa creates the setting for a safe and secure world, a place for relaxed withdrawal from the hustle-&-bustle of life. Yet, Alcove Sofa is also a meeting place and point of communication: In the larger version two people can sit opposite each other, relaxing back against the side walls. As two- or three-seaters, the Alcove Sofa fits interiors of different sizes. Moreover, the Alcove Love Seat offers the advantages of the Alcove Sofa but for a small footprint, benefiting from the wall panels, that are as thin as they are flexible that means the armchair is spacious despite its compact outer size. The Alcove Ottoman is a comfortable complement.
Alcove Sofas come in two different upholstery versions, soft `lounge upholstery‘ for relaxed sitting and firmer `work upholstery‘ for
work-oriented sitting with various seat heights.
Lounge upholstery = 485 mm (measured according to EN 1335-1 = 325 mm),
Work upholstery = 480 mm (measured according to EN 1335 = 385 mm).
Chromed tubular steel, metal frame with belt upholstery, panels made of fibreglass-reinforced plastic, seat cushioning: polyurethane foam and polyester wool, backrest cushioning and set of cushions: filled with microfibres and polyurethane chips.
