Ro™ sofa

By Fritz Hansen


  • Description

    Jaime Hayon's successful lounge chair Ro™ now fits two at a time. We introduce Ro as a 2-seater sofa - still accompanied by the curvy characteristics and playful, colourful expression found in Jaime Hayon's design philosophy. With the Ro™ Sofa, softness is expressed in a social setting for two or for four people when placed in front of one another. Experience a unique feeling of privacy and plenty of space at the same time in the Ro Sofa by Jaime Hayon.

    In 2013 Jaime Hayon created the soft, sheltering easy chair Ro™. 2017 is the year where we introduce Ro as a 2-seater sofa. The Ro™ Sofa is perfect for any open office environment or other spaces that has the need for a breakout area or a room division. The Ro chair's distinct, sculptural shape has been interpreted in the Ro Sofa version and the two now make up a small unified collection.
    Discover Jaime Hayon's characteristic use of curves and mix of materials in the Ro Sofa and combine it with the Ro or Fri lounge chairs for the full and fun Jaime Hayon design experience - at home, in the hotel lobby or in a cosy café setting. Despite its high back, the Ro Sofa is warm and welcoming and has a cosy expression, whilst at the same time it offers the possibility of an enclosing, intimate space built for privacy.
    Like the chair, the Ro Sofa offers several design possibilities across contrasting colours and tone-on-tone upholstery as well as across wooden and aluminum legs. On the contract market, the sofa version supplements the chair version perfectly in lounge, lobby or breakout areas. Add the Little Friend™ side table for a functional and modern setting - whether the scene is set for driving creativity or for meetings.

    Jaime Hayon

    Spanish artist-designer was born in Madrid in 1974. As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so imminent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, working closely with the legendary image-maker and agitator Oliviero Toscani.
    In a short time he was promoted from student to head of their Design Department. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with his collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, later followed by interior design and installations. Jaime Hayon has created the FAVN™ sofa for Fritz Hansen. It is designed with great attention to detail and consist of very few elements. Creating FAVN™ has been an experimental dialogue. Thinking in a holistic approach, discussing who we are and how we live. Back to the human approach, while being innovative and taking risks.
    I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic - that's why we named it FAVN. At the same time I wanted to explore a technique - I always focus on techniques. It looks really simple, but it's really complex.
