If you’ve spent any amount of time in an airport, you know just how loud and distracting they are with thousands of people rushing to catch their flights. It’s usually so noisy that you can’t hear your own thoughts making it nearly impossible to attempt to get any work done. It’s just as bad in reception areas and lobbies. Looking to solve that, Foster + Parners designed the Cove lounge chair for Poltrona Frau that gives the user a comfortable spot to work while offering just enough privacy to be productive.

Besides working, the cozy chair makes a great spot to sit back, relax, and charge your devices while you’re waiting. The circular, upholstered structure provides a comfortable seat, an integrated USB charging port, as well as an optional main power supply and table. Cove’s inner and outer surfaces come in a variety of fabrics and leathers that can be chosen.

Cove recently made its debut at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Stockholm.
