Ro Chair by Jaime Hayon for Republic of Fritz Hansen

The world-renowned Spanish designer Jaime Hayon has worked together with Republic of Fritz Hansen to create the Ro Chair that was launched at Salone del Mobile 2013 in Milan. Ro is much more than an easy chair. It’s a 11⁄2-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 tranquillity 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.

Fritz Hansen’s design brief to Jaime Hayon was “… to create a comfortable seat for one person”. “We put a great deal of effort into the form of the chair, which is inspired by the human body. We wanted a chair that was comfortable as well as beautiful. My goal was to create a slim and elegant chair that encourages reflection and comfort,” says Jaime Hayon.

“Ro” means tranquillity 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.
