Fritz Hansen

Designed by Jaime Hayon

FAVN™– the Danish word for embrace is the result of an experimental dialogue between Fritz Hansen and artist-designer Jaime Hayon. It presents an honest interpretation of Fritz Hansen’s design values.

“FAVN™ is picking up from the long tradition of Arne Jacobsen in the sense that I wanted to create a form that was based on a shell, like the Egg™ and the Swan™ which looks equally beautiful from all angles.” Hayon continues. “I wanted the sofa to be based on a shell. A shell being hard on the outside, soft and welcoming on the inside. I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic – that’s why we named it FAVN™.” Says Jaime Hayon.

The sofa comes in 10 unique and different designer selections with a mix of three fabrics; one fabric for the shell, one for the seat and back cushions and the third fabric is applied to the small decorative cushions (contact us for the 10 Designer Selections).

Below the seat cushion there is a small logo and signature plate in satin brushed aluminium hand sewn on to the sofa.
