Republic of Fritz Hansen and designer Jaime Hayon introduce a new sofa concept: the modular Lune. Born out of Hayon’s Ro and Fri chair design concepts, Line is based on the same curvy design philosophy, making it quite distinct from other modular sofas. The bold design looks and feels like a conventional sofa but offers the versatility of a modular construction.
The sculptural ans curvy Lune design captures the intersection of clean Nordic aesthetics and southern elegance. The functional, modular system offers unlimited possibilities – from a straight two-seater to larger L-shapes, along with chaise lounge options. Lune is not only extremely comfortable, but also beautiful from every angle.
Lune is carefully constructed to enhance comfort in every inch of the sofa. The exceptionally soft seat is upholstered with a cotton-linen fabric blend, while the cushions are crafted using four layers of materials with a top layer of duck and goose feathers. When seated, one experiences incredible comfort and softness as the cushions mould around the body.
Jacob Holm, CEO of Fritz Hansen says, “I have great respect for Jaime. His ability to think three-dimensionally is extraordinary and highlights the fact that, deep down, he is as much a sculptor as a designer. His design idiom can be both dramatic yet subtle – always with a twist, and always with a spot-on interpretation of the Fritz Hansen DNA.”
As an extension of the Lune experience, Jaime Hayon has also created a number of Objects pieces – a pillow, two throws and a sofa tray. The pillow and throws feature some of Hayon’s well-known motifs.
The Lune sofa and Objects by Hayon will be launched for the first time at the Salone del Mobile 2017, from April 4 to 9.
