Cyl Sofa / シル ソファ
Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, 2016
The side and back panels of Cyl Sofa create a space for retreat: while the low panels send more of a signal that privacy is desired, the high panels actually create a sheltered physical space – Cyl Sofa High shields users from view. Two Cyl Sofa High units can be placed opposite one another to create a spontaneous meeting room, without any need for fixed structures. The sofa's firm upholstery supports an upright sitting position, which is conducive to work tasks and meetings; the panels are available in wood veneer or covered with fabric.
