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.
