Favn Designer Selection Black

"Favn" 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. I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic - that's why we named it FAVN" says Jaime Hayón. Recognized by his fresh, colourful and extrovert design style, the award winning artist-designer is the most recent addition to Fritz Hansen's family tree of designers. Hayón carries forward Fritz Hansen's long tradition of working with some of the world's most talented architect and designers.
"FAVN is an evolution of Fritz Hansen's design language that brings together the qualities of Spanish and Danish design". Says Jaime Hayón. "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. The  sofa is presented in 3 designers colours, which includes a mix of three fabrics to express the form of its three main components; the shell, seat and back and decorative cushions. The combination of texture and tone is appealing to the visual and emotional senses.
The shell consists of two parts a base and a back shell, both are made from hard polyurethane foam with glass fibre reinforcement. Both parts have an embedded steel frame and the base also with mounted nozag springs. The base and back shell are assembled with 6 steel brackets and Hex screws (can also be disassembled for moving with an Hex key no.4). The outside of the back shell and base is covered with a thin, soft layer of polyurethane foam and wadding. The four legs consists 3 parts; an upholstered trumpet matching the base, a satin polished aluminium cylinder and a felt glide to protect the floor. The range of accessories include loose decorative cushions and large felt glides for soft floors (i.e. linoleum). A fire retardant version (CMHR) that meets Crib 5 standards is also available.
Dimensions D93 x W221 x H88 cm – Armrests height 60 cm – Seat height 42cm
