HAY wanted to make a light sofa with soft rounded shapes to make it welcoming and informal while keeping it firm. From beginning to end the design process has been very “hands on” to get exactly the right shapes, curves and stitches. Bjørn was born.
The slender frame contrasts the voluminous body and legs lifts the seats from the floor making it seem lighter. The armrests seem to hug the seat. Stitching has been minimized and each seat, backrest and armrest is upholstered in just one piece of fabric to make the edges soft and round. The frame is made from extruded aluminum and available in chrome, powder coated or with upholstery in the same fabric as the sofa.
Bjørn is currently available as a 3-seater with two wide seats, but they are working on turning it into a modular system.
