Alcove Plume Contract

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2015

alt

Alcove Plume Contract dispenses with visible legs and an external tubular steel frame, which emphasises its reductive design and almost makes it appear like a minimalist sculpture. With their cubic shapes, both sofas serve as architectural elements that can be used to structure interior spaces. In contrast to their emphatically linear contours, they offer the soft comfort of a lounge sofa and bring a sense of familiarity and cosiness to offices and public areas. Alcove Plume Contract Highback, in particular – due to its high back and side panels – creates an inviting place to withdraw, while two facing Alcove Plume Contract sofas form a comfortable meeting area.
