Alcove Plus Work/Desk
Alcove Plus Desk is a touchdown workstation that shields users both visually and acoustically, making it ideally suited for focussed tasks. Alcove Plus Desk comes in three sizes and can be fitted with portable partition screens, which are attached to the side panels with zip fasteners. These offer added privacy but can also be used to establish traffic patterns within the office, create additional niches or form larger structures.
Offering a temporary retreat for quiet concentrated work, Alcove Plus Work comes with an integrated tablet desk, optionally available with power and data. Alcove Plus Work differs from Alcove Work due to its panels, which extend almost to the floor and also conceal the frame. Portable partition screens can be attached to the high side panels with zip fasteners. They can be used to increase privacy, establish traffic patterns within the office, create additional niches or form larger structures.
|Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec
Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, born 1971 and 1976, respectively, in Quimper, France, studied at the École Nationale des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and at the École des Beaux-Arts in Cergy-Pontoise. Ronan began independent design work immediately after completing his studies, while his brother, who was still in school, assisted him. Since 1999 both brothers have worked together as joint partners in their own Paris-based design studio. Their work ranges from small utilitarian objects to architectural projects. In addition to the design of domestic and office furniture, vases, porcelain dishware, jewellery and diverse home accessories, a primary focus of their work is the design and organisation of interior space. One of their most unconventional designs, Algue (2004), was created in this context. The collaboration between the Bouroullec brothers and Vitra began with the office furniture system Joyn, which was developed between 2000 and 2002 and continues to be expanded and refined. Along with Jasper Morrison, Hella Jongerius and Antonio Citterio, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have made major contributions to the steadily growing Vitra Home Collection.
