Some Call It Urban Tranquility, Danes Just Call It "RO"
Ro™ – the new comfort zone
The world-renowned Spanish designer Jaime Hayon has worked together with Republic of Fritz Hansen™ to create today's answer to tomorrow's easy chair. A chair where you can find tranquility and take a break from the hectic bustle of everyday life. The chair is called Ro™ which happens to mean tranquility in Danish and was launched at Salone del Mobile 2013 in Milan. The comfortable seating of Ro™ makes it much more than an easy chair. It is a 1 1/2 seater, where you can relax, change positions and have your newspaper, computer or child next to you and create a new comfort zone. The design of the shell is designed without compromise, its elegant and simple, pleasing to both the eye and the body and offers the promise of tranquility in both its visual expression and its comfortable functionality. Furthermore, the form of the shell gives you the choice of being part of what goes on in the room or relaxing in your own private space. The easy chair is available in nine colors: three traditional options (black, grey and taupe), three bright colors (violet, blue and yellow) and three soft colors (light pink, sage-green and sand). For a more vibrant look, the chair features two different textures: one for the seat shell and one for the cushions, which supports the contrasted expression of the hard shell and the warm and soft interior.
