The 'room in a room' is a concept that Vitra has intensively pursued over many years in collaboration with the designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. The idea of mobile micro-architectural elements has led to a wide variety of designs, among which the Alcove Sofa stands out as one of the most remarkable.
Alcove Plume Contract sofa has a reductive design that appears almost like a minimalist sculpture. Its cubic shape serves as an architectural element that can be used to structure interior spaces. In contrast to its emphatically linear contours, Alcove Plume Contract offers the soft comfort of a lounge sofa and brings sheltered seclusion to offices and public spaces.It has no tubular steel frame and a low floor clearance, comes in two heights: Lowback (85 cm) and Highback (123 cm). It appears almost like a minimalist sculpture, while its high back and side panels create an inviting, secluded niche. The cubic architectural element not only brings structure to interior spaces, but also offers soft comfort and sheltered privacy in open-plan office environments and public settings.
