The key idea thinking the Vitra Alcove Sofa is that a sofa can be much more than just another piece of furniture. This is especially true of the Alcove High back Sofa, whose side and back panels tower over the heads of those sitting in it.
Sitting within the Vitra Alcove High back, you cannot be seen or heard from the outside, and find yourself in a secluded space. Thanks to the outstanding acoustic qualities of the Alcove High back Sofa and its function as a visual screen, it creates a truly peaceful oasis, especially in spacious living areas. This effect is even more pronounced when two sofas are positioned face to face, creating a room within a room.
Upholstery: 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 seat height (measured according to EN 1335-1 = 325 mm), Work upholstery = 480 mm seat height (measured according to EN 1335-1 = 385 mm).
