Alcove Highback Work

The fundamental idea behind the Alcove product family – providing places of shelter and seclusion – also applies to Alcove Highback Work: the sofa shields users both visually and acoustically from the surrounding environment, forming a space for withdrawal. With its integrated tablet desk, storage box and cable inlet, Alcove Highback Work is a sofa version that offers a flexible and private workspace in the open-plan office for individual tasks requiring concentration.

Alcove
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. 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 Alcove family features a variety of different sofa models for use in home interiors as well as office environments.
