Description

The result of a collaboration between Fritz Hansen and brilliant Spanish designer Jaime Hayon, the JH97 chair strikes a perfect balance between past and future. Jaime Hayon gives us an expressive, modern vision of the traditional Danish lounge chair. Perfectly proportioned, the low, open silhouette offers a padded seat and a wide, reclined backrest for perfect comfort even when sitting for a long time. The wide, flat armrests embrace and support the body. The generously sized cushions are covered with high-quality leather covers. Comfort is a key element of its design, as is a combination of the best of Danish design tradition and modern technology. The JH97 armchair is part of the craft heritage of the Fritz Hansen design house, with its long history of woodworking. The carved wooden structure is made from 8 individual pieces of wood, cut digitally before being carefully finished and assembled by hand. Elegant from every angle, the assemblies are extremely aesthetic. The frame with its slightly rounded edges is assembled by hand, in tribute to the artisan tradition of Danish heritage. JH97 brilliantly combines ancestral craftsmanship with an innovative, modern design. JH97 is both classic and modern, bold and simple, light yet strong. Christian Andresen, head of design at Fritz Hansen, explains: "We wanted to create a modern lounge chair, both light and sculptural. The fusion of Fritz Hansen's know-how with the sculptural artistic language of Jaime Hayon. I think we've created a truly amazing piece of furniture where function, craftsmanship and beauty go hand in hand." Inspired by nature, the lines of the JH97 chair evoke those of a pelican: that bird with its long, broad wings, slightly curved body and distinctive beak. The rounded, contoured shape of the beak and body of the pelican is noticeable in the curved shapes of the frame and cushions. The JH97 lounge chair conveys a sensation of lightness equivalent to its expressive force. Jaime Hayon on JH97: "This lounge chair is more than just a simple seat; it’s expressive, light and comfortable and can animate, bring additional soul to a wide variety of spaces. It perfectly combines Danish tradition with a Mediterranean feel, which I really like. I love the silhouette and beauty of the view from every angle. " The JH97 chair is a versatile, timeless piece that blends into almost any environment - from homes to hotels and offices - while retaining its authenticity and character.
