To answer simply yes would not be really answering your question. If you look at the seat angle in relation to the back you would notice that it is angled towards the back. You could also see that the sofa is slightly higher in the front legs than in the back legs, such angle helps to cradle your body more effectively and allows for comfortable seating posture. Also the smaller back cushion (with buttons) provides support for your lower back (S-shape curvature of the spine). I don't know (unfortunately) who designed this sofa ,but he had a good idea of human anatomy as well as principles of ergonomics.
