Some Privacy Please

Bright open workspaces is definitely the trend for offices these days. More companies are moving into lofts and big industrial spaces with no rooms or walls. But what do you do when you need a little privacy? Well, many furniture design companies are meeting this need with furniture elements that help create private space…or at least some sense of private space.

We like this piece by Vitra, the Alcove Highback Sofa. It’s pretty unique in that it’s a fairly simple integrated solution for creating a private space for a lounge area. The high cushion walls also provide some sound absorption…perfect for a small lounge/meeting area. We can imagine many uses for this in spaces where walls are sparse and a meeting area needed to be out in the open.
