Luva Modular Sofa

Starting From

Designed by Gabriel Tan for Herman Miller®
Fold up, down, or reconfigure as you please. The Luva Modular Armchair presents timeless beauty in an inventive form. Created by designer Gabriel Tan, Luva is a case study for probing at the intersections of art, design, and culture. The chair's elemental form is inspired by the soft-rolled tops of Japanese futons and the padded tactility of a boxing glove. Luva (Portuguese for “glove”) can close into a “fist” for supportive sitting or unfold for relaxed repose. Available as a sectional, chaise, armchair, and more, you can choose a pre-set configuration or create your own with individual sections and connective brackets, sold separately.

  • Designed for dual functionality, the back expands for relaxed lounging or folds down for a supportive seat.
  • Distinct billowy form is inspired by both boxing gloves and Japanese futons.
  • Upholstered in natural textiles and leathers that accentuate organic lines.
  • Available as an armchair, chaise, sofa, sectional, and more.
  • Sits at a lounging height of 16 inches.
  • Ganging Brackets included with purchase.

    Prone Leather

    Prone is a premium full-grain leather from Maharam, produced in a boutique tannery in Northern Italy. Prone is minimally finished to highlight the natural beauty of leather and the inherent quality of superior raw materials. The texture of the grain offers a supple hand, while a light silicone finish lends protection against wear. Prone is GREENGUARD Gold Certified.

    • Grade: Full Grain
    • Finish: Semi-Aniline
    • Thickness: 1.1-1.3mm
    • Origin: Italy
    • Maintenance: Dust or vacuum regularly. Do not spot clean; clean the entire surface. Wipe clean with a damp cloth, and dry with a clean, soft cloth. For spots and spills, wipe clean with a damp cloth using a lather of mild soap and lukewarm water. For grease stains, wipe clean with a dry cloth and let the remainder of the oil dissipate into the leather – do not use water on grease. Do not use saddle soap, solvents, oils, or other cleaners on leather.
