Jaime Hayon’s highly sought-after Ro lounge chair now fits two at a time, as Republic of Fritz Hansen introduces Ro as a two-seater sofa. Building on the curvy characteristics and playful, colourful expression that characterise his other Fritz Hansen designs, the new Ro sofa builds on Jaime Hayon’s philosophy, inviting two to experience a unique sense of privacy while enjoying ample space.
Warm and welcoming, the Ro sofa features a high back that creates an intimate space perfect for a nook in the home or a breakout area or room division in any open office environment or other open space. Two Ro sofas facing one another create further possibilities for creating private yet connected interior spaces.
The word “ro” which means tranquility in Danish, suggests the perfect place to escape the world, if only for a moment. Indeed, the Ro sofa is more than just a place to sit, but rather a much-needed experience.
The Ro sofa is the third sofa Jaime Hayon has designed for Fritz Hansen in his six-year partnership with the company, and his second sofa launch of 2017, following the highly anticipated introduction of the modular Lune at Salone del Mobile earlier this year. Jaime Hayon’s collection for Fritz Hansen also includes the Analog T dining table and the SammenT dining chair.
The Ro chair instantly fascinated audiences with its sculptural and elegant design; one seems to fall in love with it. Like its chair counterpart, the Ro sofa does not compromise on either comfort or aesthetics, reflecting refined craftsmanship and quality at every level.
The Ro sofa will be available in Republic of Fritz Hansen concept stores as well as selected stores worldwide from autumn 2017.
