Prolific Spanish designer Jaime Hayon teamed up with Republic of Fritz Hansen to redefine the classic easy chair. Ro is a curvy and elegant chair for reflection, relaxing, and taking a break from the hustle and bustle of your busy day.

The only design requirements were to “create a comfortable seat for one person” but Hayon took it a step further and designed Ro as a 1-1/2 seater, giving you room to change positions, have your bag next to you, or even sit with your child or loved one.

The word “Ro” translates to “tranquility” in Danish and the two-letter word fits the chair and its Nordic design sensibilities perfectly. The sculptural design gently hugs the body as you sit, creating a private space for that much needed relaxation.

Ro will be available in nine colors: three traditional (black, grey, and taupe), three bright (violet, blue, and yellow), and three soft (light pink, sage-green, and sand). It was launched at Milan’s Salone del Mobile and will be available in September 2013.
