Like Carl Hansen & Søn, the design company Georg Jensen also has a portfolio that includes some of Danish Design’s greatest icons. This has inspired the two brands to enter a creative partnership that has resulted in a spectacular Special Edition created especially for the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2011.
Carl Hansen & Søn, in cooperation with Georg Jensen, will present the new office furniture in a special golden version produced in just one set for the Milan show. Wegner created the new office concept as part of the CH100 series. Carl Hansen & Søn brings workplace aesthetics to the next level with the CH110 desk and accompanying office chairs CH111, CH112 and CH113. All stainless steel parts on the CH110 desk, the CH111 and CH112 chairs, the CH102 sofa and the CH106 coffee table are coated with 24-karat gold. The exclusive detail imbues the furniture with a warm and welcoming glow that will bring a smile to the executive floor.
Knud Erik Hansen, third-generation owner of Carl Hansen & Søn, explains about the special Milan edition:
"Managing a design heritage such as Wegner’s must be done with respect and devotion – something we are very aware of in our daily work. But if anyone was innovative and had an eye to the future, it was Wegner. Therefore we thought it would be interesting to talk to Georg Jensen, and to see what could come of bringing their masterful approach to metalworking together with Wegner’s masterpieces of design. As a designer, Wegner was also something of a contemporary King Midas: much of what he touched turned into golden examples of form meeting function, with a beauty that perseveres for generations.”

'Which piece of furniture plays a more dominant role in your life? Your table or your bed? Most of us have both, but whereas a new phase of life or a new relationship often tends to make us exchange a narrow bed for a wider one, without expecting to have to downsize again, many people prefer to retain a certain amount of flexibility in the size of their table. Accommodating one or two people only or a group, extendable tables can be adapted to a romantic tète-a-tète, a family with children or even a large festive gathering.'

The new sofa is the result of a creative dialogue and will be launched during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2011 at Republic of Fritz Hansen's showroom in Milan."I wanted the sofa to be based on a shell. A shell being hard on the outside, soft and welcoming on the inside." Says Jaime Hayón. "I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic - that's why we named it FAVN." Hayón continues.
Recognized by his fresh, colourful and extrovert design style, the award winning artist-designer is the most recent addition to Fritz Hansen's family tree of designers. Hayón carries forward Fritz Hansen's long tradition of working with some of the world's most talented architect and designers.
"FAVN is an evolution of Fritz Hansen's design language that brings together the qualities of Spanish and Danish design". Says Jaime Hayón. "FAVN is picking up from the long tradition of Arne Jacobsen in the sense that I wanted to create a form that was based on a shell, like the Egg™ and the Swan™ which looks equally beautiful from all angles." Hayón continues.
FAVN is the result of an experimental dialogue and presents an honest interpretation of Fritz Hansen's design values. It represents a true reflection of Fritz Hansen's ambition to achieve sustainable quality in crafting timeless design.
The new sofa is presented in ten unique Designer Selections; light grey, sage green, clear beige, taupe, chocolate, moutarde, red, violet, dark blue and black. It includes a mix of three fabrics to express the form of its three main components; the shell, seat and back and decorative cushions. The combination of texture and tone is appealing to the visual and emotional senses.
FAVN will be launched at Republic of Fritz Hansen's showroom in Milan on Corso Garibaldi, 77 during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2011. The new sofa will be available to purchase from Republic of Fritz Hansen stores and selected authorized Republic of Fritz Hansen dealers from around the world as of September 2011.
