How amazing to have a beautiful chair with your name on it!
Sheer coincidence of course, but it makes it all the
sweeter when the designer chose the name Ro
for its meaning, tranquility in Danish!

The world-renowned Spanish designer Jaime Hayon has worked together with Republic of Fritz Hansen to create 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. The chair is called Ro and was launched at Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Time for reflection is a luxury in today's world.
We are all busy and always short of time to create a
moment for quiet contemplation. The new easy chair springs
from a desire to create a piece of furniture that
offers an opportunity for reflection in our busy lives.
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.
