With the introduction of Alcove Plume Contract, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have expanded the wide selection of Alcove products for use in offices and public spaces. This has been achieved by adapting the low-slung Alcove Plume Sofa to office demands, and adding high back and side panels to create an additional Highback version. 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 spaces. With its high back and side panels, Alcove Plume Contract Highback, in particular, creates an inviting place to withdraw, while two facing Alcove Plume Contract sofas form a meeting area that can be supplemented by an Alcove table in the middle.
