About Fritz Hansen, also known as Republic of Fritz Hansen is a Danish furniture design company. Designers who have worked for Fritz Hansen include legends such as Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm, Hans J. Wegner, and Piet Hein. Fritz Hansen also collaborates with contemporary furniture architects including Hiromichi Konno, Cecilie Manz and Kasper Salto.
The world-renowned Spanish designer Jaime Hayon has worked together with Republic of Fritz Hansen to create today’s answer to tomorrow’s easy chair. A chair where you can find room for your inner space and take a break from the hectic bustle of everyday life. The chair is called Ro and will be launched at Clerkenwell Design Week in London.
Time for reflection is a luxury in today’s world. We are all busy and always short of time to create a moment for quiet contemplation. The new easy chair springs from a desire to create a piece of furniture that offers an opportunity for reflection in our busy lives. However, Ro is much more than an easy chair. It’s a 11⁄2-seater where you can relax, change positions and have your newspaper, computer or child next to you and create a new comfort zone.
The design of the shell is elegant and simple, pleasing to both the eye and the body and offers the promise of tranquility in both its visual expression and its comfortable functionality. Furthermore, the form of the shell gives you the choice of being part of what goes on in the room or relaxing in your own private space.
Fritz Hansen’s design brief to Jaime Hayon was “… to create a comfortable seat for one person”.
Clerkenwell Design Week takes place in London 21 to 23 May 2013
