Cove | Armchair

Foster + Partners

Designed by Foster & Partners, the Cove airport seat is much more than just an armchair: it is a space within a space. It regales its users an oasis of calm and tranquillity, away from the chaos of the surrounding environment. The Cove airport seat satisfies the demand for privacy in crowded locations such as public lounges in stations and airports, reception areas and showrooms. Its curved profile is designed to provide the ideal space for working or relaxing in total comfort, without the need for dividing walls. Thanks to its fine materials and minimalist look, the Cove airport seat is a unique product that combines design elegance with practicality. 


The distinctive design of the Cove seat stems from research carried out on the use of furniture by lounge guests. Its circular shape was designed with care and precision to offer a spacious and comfortable seat, a USB port, an optional mains power supply and a table which can be used as a desk. Both the inside and exterior surfaces of the Cove airport seat can be customised with Pelle Frau® leather, saddle leather or fabric to fit with the surrounding decor.

Designed by
Foster + Partners

Foster + Partners has always been guided by a belief that the quality of our surroundings has a direct influence on the quality of our lives, whether that is in the workplace, at home or in the public realm. Allied to that is an acknowledgement that architecture is generated by the needs of people - both material and spiritual - and a concern for the physical context and the culture and climate of place. Foster + Partners believe the best architecture comes from a synthesis of all the elements that separately comprise and inform the character of a building: the structure that holds it up; the services that allow it to function; its ecology; the quality of natural light; the symbolism of the form; the relationship of the building to the skyline or the streetscape; the way you move through or around it; and last but not least its ability to lift the spirits. This holistic approach is augmented by a strong commitment to the clients we serve, and also to the public domain and the many users involved. A high degree of personal service, coupled with respect for the precious resources of cost and time, therefore characterises our client relationships.
