Luva Modular Sofa Group
Luva Modular Sofa GroupDesigned by Gabriel Tan for Herman Miller
With Luva, you don’t have to choose comfort over style—form and function are truly one in this design. It’s incredibly versatile and visually irresistible.
Inspired shape, versatile form
Designer Gabriel Tan designed Luva—Portuguese for “glove”—at his studio in Porto. He took inspiration from the shape of boxing gloves, with their soft grip and padded support, and Japanese futons—or Shikibuton—and their delicate rolled tops that provide as much function as visual interest. The result is a soft and billowy form, grounded with natural textiles and organic lines.
Best of both worlds
From relaxed to supported and back again, the Luva Modular Sofa Group is truly dual purpose. Much like the glove it emulates, Luva can expand into an open back, allowing a relaxed lounge posture. With a closed “fist,” it becomes a more supported seat, serving as a place to chat and work. Simultaneously sophisticated and comfortable, it’s the best of both worlds.
Luva is available in several configurations, from an armchair and chaise to a sofa or sectional. A detachable ottoman adds to the variety and unique configurations. Thanks to a hidden bar near the bottom of the seat, these pieces can be ganged together easily, or moved apart as desired—all without changing the look and feel of the soft support Luva provides.
