Design Jaime Hayon, 2013

Made by Fritz Hansen

"We worked intensively with the chair's shape because it should be both comfortable and utterly elegant" -Jaime Hayon

The world-renowned Spanish designer Jaime Hayon working together with Fritz Hansen have created 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.

Ro™ is much more than an easy chair. It's a 1½-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.

"Ro" means tranquility in Danish. The name was chosen because it captures the point of the chair in just two letters, thus reflecting the Nordic approach and concept of beauty. Ro is made with great craftsmanship and in the highest sustainable quality. Combined with the sculptural and elegant design, the result is a functional and aesthetic chair that fascinates its surroundings. One seems to fall in love with it.

Ro is also available online in a single fabric version. It can also be specified with a mix of two fabrics; one fabric for the shell, one for the cushions (please call the hive showroom to order). The legs are offered in brushed aluminium or as a wooden base/legs in oak.
