FAVN™, the Danish translation for embrace, is designed with great attention to detail and consist of only a few elements. "I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic, that's why we named it FAVN, says Jaime Hayón. It is an evolution of Fritz Hansen's design language that brings together the qualities of Spanish and Danish design. The work of the artist-designer is characterized by his respect for color, craftsmanship and techniques.
The large rounded shell rests on the small, but elegant legs while the seat and back together with the decorative cushions combined with the use of three textures, makes up the strong visual layers. As the sofa has no edges – it is round and soft. "I wanted the sofa to be based on a shell. A shell, being hard on the outside, soft and welcoming on the inside. Protective and warm." http://www.fritzhansen.com/en/favn#JH3_13_MC100_FAV008_LC100_B100
