Fritz Hansen - Plenum sofa

Jaime Hayon designs co-working furniture for Fritz Hansen

Danish furniture brand Fritz Hansen has made its first foray into office furniture with a new collection of high-walled seats designed by Jaime Hayon for collaborative working environments.

The Plenum seating collection is named after the Latin word for a group meeting, and includes sofas surrounded by walls with sweeping curves and rounded corners. The walls extend above the cushions that pad out the seats, creating private, semi-enclosed spaces for the ad-hoc meetings of modern workplaces.

You can choose between three different tables to attach to the steel frame; a small, round swivel table, a low lounge table and a higher work desk. You can also get a clip-on power unit with electrical sockets and USB ports.

The sofas come as two or three seaters to give you a casual meeting spot, and there’s also a wide single seater for an individual workspace. They all come flat-packed and are available in any Gabriel fabric.

Fritz Hansen will officially launch the collection in Cologne at Orgatec later this month.
