French designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have added ‘Alcove Plume’, a low-slung sofa with an emphasis on casual comfort, to Vitra’s Alcove product family.
“A sofa can go beyond being a mere piece of furniture to become a room within a room. This was the idea that inspired Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec in their design of the Alcove Sofa.” says Vitra. “With its comfortable seat and backrest upholstery and the high, flexible side and back panels, the Alcove Sofa 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 that sitters do not sink in too deeply. Combined with the quilted side and back panels – a hallmark feature of the entire Alcove family – and the pointed loose cushions, they create a cosy and relaxing nest.”
