This is an original genuine Vitra piece.

Taking its name from the shell of a sea snail, Abalon forms its own architecture for seating circles: with its organically curved shape, the sofa evokes a circle to which people feel drawn. The expansive backrest has two functions: it shields sitters who are engaged in a private conversation and off ers a sense of protection to those seeking retreat within an open environment.

Abalon is unusual in appearance: solid yet light, massive yet graceful. It functions as a striking solo piece and when several sofas are used together, the concave and convex surfaces create a state of compelling tension, neither attracting nor repelling one other. The upholstered seat shell of the Abalon Sofa generously accommodates three people, while the curved shape creates a common focal point. The front and back of the seat shells are covered separately with different knitted fabrics, which can be chosen in various combinations. Together with the two available colours of the boldly defi ned base, this opens up a wide range of confi guration options. The fabric covers of the sofa can be removed in full for cleaning or replacement, which further enhances its durability.

Abalon Platform is a round stool that can be used as a fl exible seat as well as a footrest. The carefully proportioned, widely splayed legs of the base not only ensure a high degree of stability, but also clearly identify the stool as a member of the Abalon family. The Abalon Table is also part of the product family. The round tops of this coffee table are available in a choice of finishes.
