FRED lounge chair
Jaime Hayón, 2019

 Fabric Plecto 934
+ clear lacquered oak

With the Fred lounge chair JH97, the Spanish designer Jaime Hayón has created a lounge chair that is both classic and modern. Classic because it fits in the Danish tradition with its look and materials. And modern by its manufacture. Indeed, its structure is made of eight pieces of wood, cut numerically by means of a machine. Each part is then finished and assembled by hand by a skilled craftsman. This process has allowed Fritz Hansen to produce a high-quality lounge chair with all the know-how dear to the brand, and at an affordable price.

The JH97 lounge chair has a frame in solid oak, with a lacquered or stained finish. The seat cushion, large and generous, is associated with a slightly inclined back cushion. Together, they provide ideal comfort for long moments of relaxation, while the armrests provide excellent support. The JH97 lounge chair is perfectly suited for use in private settings – in a living room or bedroom for example – but also in public environments such as a hotel lobby, an open space or a waiting area.

Jaime Hayón

Born in Madrid in 1974, Jaime Hayón has one of the most glittering careers in recent contemporary design. Although trained in Madrid, he forged his reputation at Fabrica, the creative breeding ground run by Benetton near the Italian city of Treviso. Arriving in 1997, at the young age of 24, Hayón worked for Oliviero Toscani, who would soon place him in charge of the design department. It was at Fabrica that Hayón first worked with BD on the Mail Me project.

In 2004, he decided to branch out on his own, settling in Barcelona and working on a number of projects while also exhibiting his more personal work in art galleries. The exhibition “Mediterranean Digital Baroque”, at London’s David Gill Gallery, and the bathroom collection he designed for ArtQuitect marked the start of his meteoric international rise, which was established with the Showtime collection for BD and his subsequent work with companies such as Metalarte, Camper, Lladró, Bisazza, Swarovsky, and Moooi.
