Favn

Fritz Hansen has introduced another beauty. Known for representing some of the most coveted and famous modern furniture lines, they have teamed up with designer Jaime Hayon to create, no doubt, a soon to be classic. The colorful interpretation of classic form fits well within the line. I can imagine this piece placed comfortably among some of my favorite Jacobsen, Hein or Wegner Pieces.

“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.” Hayón 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.” Jaime Hayon

Introduced in ten scrumptious colors, fans of a classic modern decor are sure to find one to please; Light Grey, Sage Green, Clear Beige, Taupe, Chocolate, Moutard, Red, Violet, Dark Blue, and Black. The perfect palette. The sofa is designed for comfort, practicality, and environmental criteria alike. While the aesthetic is prim and proper, Jaime shares his approach in designing for real life, and real use. “Design needs to solve the problem and be long lasting – of-course. But it is important to remember that my design is made for humans – to be used by humans. I believe that design should provoke emotions. Design should make you feel good. Create happiness”. I couldn’t agree more.
