Poltrona Frau will use Passenger Terminal EXPO to introduce Cove, its newest solution for flexible personal spaces, designed by Foster + Partners.
The Cove chair responds to a desire for privacy in busy spaces. Its generously curved form provides ample room for a person to relax or work in comfort, while offering a sense of seclusion without the need for walls. It is suitable for a variety of areas, including public lounges, receptions and showrooms, and was designed by Foster + Partners to function as part of a cloud-like cluster of chairs, as well as providing a secluded space to eat, work or relax.
The refined materials and minimal aesthetic bring together comfort and practicality. Its distinctive curved form was the result of studies into the different ways users adapt existing lounge furniture. The circular form incorporates a wide, comfortable seat, an integrated USB charging point, an optional mains power supply and a table, which can be used as an informal desk. The ribbing of the cushion at the back of the chair extends in places to form ridges, which can be used as armrests. The inner and outer surfaces can be customized in a variety of leathers and fabrics.
