INTRODUCING CAN

The new CAN collection by the Bouroullecs for HAY is now available from all Cult showrooms. With CAN, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec are seeking to go beyond the creation of a practical, elegant and comfortable design. The intention is to reinvigorate the whole idea of the sofa, from something inherently complicated, to something simple, relaxed and for everyone.


The CAN collection includes an armchair and sofa in 2-seater and 3-seater sizes. All pieces come flat-packed and can easily be assembled at home from three basic elements - powdercoated steel frame, an upholstered cover and foam/feather cushions. It's all about using minimal resources: less transportation, less volume, less stock and less packaging. 

 

The idea of the name Can is that 'you can'; you can make it, just don’t be afraid! Maybe the sofa will raise the fear 'can I do this?', 'is it going to be right?'... So, it is implemented into the name itself, just don’t be afraid, it will work. See how easy it is to assemble CAN here

 

CAN is available with a powdercoated steel frame in charcoal, black, warm red or light grey. Choose from a select group of fabric or leather upholstery. Dimensions: 

- 1-seater: L87,5/89,5 x W97 x H40/68/82 cm
