I've been admiring the String shelf for a while now... The shelf was designed by Nils Strinning in 1949 for the Bonnier bookshelf competition. Bonnier wanted a shelf that would be cheap, simple to transport and easy to assemble and hang. Strinning had been thinking of just such a shelf, and the competition became a reason to put thought into action. Naturally the String shelf won first price. It became quickly popular all over Europe, and can nowadays be considered a real Scandinavian design classic.

Jaime Hayón has created a new sofa for Fritz Hansen, called FAVN. The name means 'embrace' in Danish. "I wanted the sofa to be based on a shell. A shell being hard on the outside, soft and welcoming on the inside", Hayón says. "I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic - that's why we named it FAVN."
FAVN will be launched at Republic of Fritz Hansen's showroom in Milan during Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2011. The sofa will be available for purchase in September 2011.
