The Fri Lounge Chair was designed for Fritz Hansen by the Spanish designer Jaime Hayón, also author of the Ro armchair, the Ro sofa and the Favn sofa. Just like the Ro armchair, its comfort is exceptional, all in firmness, ergonomics and softness.
The shell of the Fri is made of hard polyurethane foam reinforced in the corners with fibreglass, like the classic Egg and Swan armchairs. The seat cushion is in molded polyurethane foam, a material that provides optimal hold and comfort. The backrest cushion is made up of two layers of foam and lumbar support which provide excellent back support. The set is fully upholstered and available in a very wide range of colors. The four legs can be chosen in oak or brushed aluminium.
Nylon glides make them suitable for the vast majority of floors.
The armchair can be covered with one and the same fabric or with two different ones, one for the shell, the other for the cushions, at no additional cost.

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.
