Polar Alcove

Polar Alcove is a seating system inspired by the blocks of ice that float in the waters of the North Sea, a place far from the frenzy of urban life where silence and pristine nature abound. Thanks to the new high backrest that creates an intimate, private space, the seating’s generous proportions and oblique angles form islands of total relaxation. The seat can also be equipped with a USB port, making it a strategic ally for enjoying the utmost comfort without giving up the benefits of modern technology.
