Jaime Hayon's successful lounge chair Ro™ now fits two at a time.
We introduce Ro as a 2-seater sofa - still accompanied by the curvy characteristics and playful, colourful expression found in Jaime Hayon's design philosophy. The Ro Sofa comes fully upholstered in a selection of unique Designer Selection colours in the fabric Fiord: One colour for the shell and one for the cushions. The base consists of 4 legs in brushed aluminum and is also available with a wooden base in solid oak with a clear lacquer finish.
Hayon’s Spanish heritage and sense of humour are inherent in everything he creates, from lounge to dining chairs.
"It is important to remember that my design is made for humans – to be used by humans. I believe that design should provoke emotions. Design should make you feel good. Create happiness."
As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so imminent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, working closely with the legendary image-maker and agitator Oliviero Toscani. In a short time he was promoted from student to head of their Design Department. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with his collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, later followed by interior design and installations.
