Jaime Hayon’s higly sought-after Ro lounge chair now fits two at a time, as Republic of Fritz Hansen introduces Ro as a two-seater sofa. Building on the curvy characteristics and playful, colorful expression that characterise his other Fritz Hansen designs, the new Ro sofa builds on Jaime Hayon’s philosophy, inviting two experience a unique sense of privacy while enjoying ample space.

Warm and welcoming, the Ro soda features a high back that creates an intimate space perfect for a nook in the home or a breakout area or room division in any open office environment or other open space. Two Ro sofas facing one other create further possibilities for creating private yet connected interior spaces.

The word “ro,” wich means “tranquility” in Danish, suggests the perfect place to escape the world, if only for a moment. Indeed, the Ro sofa is more that just a place to sit, but rather a much-needed experience.

The Ro sofa in the third sofa Jaime Hayon has designed for Fritz Hansen in his six-year partnership with the company, and his second sofa launch of 2017, following the highly anticipated introduction of the modular Lune at Salone del Mobile early this year.

The Ro sofa will be available in Republic of Fritz Hansen concept stores as well as selected stores worldwide from autumn 2017.
