Republic of Fritz Hansen™ and Jaime Hayon invite lovers of Danish design to experience a new sofa concept: the modular Lune™. Forget all your conventional thoughts about modular sofas. Lune is different. Born out of Hayon’s Ro™ and Fri™ chair design concepts, Lune is based on the same curvy design philosophy, making it quite distinct from other modular sofas. The bold design looks and feels like a conventional sofa but offers the versatility of a modular construction.
For a 360 – degree design experience, Fritz Hansen and Hayon have also created new Objects pieces to complete the ambience. The sculptural and curvy Lune™ design is characteristic of Jaime Hayon. In his quest to capture the intersection of clean Nordic aesthetics and southern elegance, Hayon has paired a playful design with Fritz Hansen’s renowned quality. The functional, modular system offers unlimited possibilities, from a straight two – seater to larger L – shapes, along with chaise longue options. Hayon’s addition of a unique aesthetic dimension to the flexible, modular sofa concept ensures that Lune is not only extremely comfortable but also beautiful from every angle.
The sofas made by Fritz Hansen
“Sofas tend to be presented from the front. I wanted to highlight the beauty of the Lune profile and the harmony between the backrest and the seat,” says Jaime Hayon. Lune™ is carefully constructed to enhance comfort in every inch of the sofa. The exceptionally soft seat is upholstered with a cotton – linen fabric blend, while the cushions are crafted using four layers of materials with a top layer of duck and goose feathers. When seated, one experiences incredible comfort and softness as the cushions mould around the body. The sofa readily returns to its original expression with just a few gentle pats.
The name Lune is a Danish word that refers to a certain coveted, ideal temperature and the feeling one gets when everything is just right. It is the temperature buns have when they come out of the oven and butter melts on top. The temperature you have when you lie on your favourite sofa under a warm blanket. And the ambience created when snow is falling outside while a fire burns in the fireplace. That is precisely how Lune™ makes you feel.
