The Fri™ easy chair illustrates the essence of an open and welcoming chair, that suits any interior with the ambition of a Nordic, serene expression. The Fri easy chair can be upholstered in Fritz Hansen Selection colours in fabric, and the base comes in brushed aluminium. Since Spanish Jaime Hayon became part of the staff of designers with Fritz Hansen, he has shown humor and personality in all his designs - from the sheltered Ro™ easy chair to the playful dining table, Analog™.
Available in a range of fabric and leather upholstery.
Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayón was born in Madrid in 1974. As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so imminent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, working closely with the legendary image-maker and agitator Oliverio Toscani. In a short time he was promoted from student to head of their Design Department, where he oversaw projects ranging from shop, restaurant and exhibition conception and design to graphics. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, followed by interior design and installation. These collections put Jaime at the forefront a new wave of creators that blurred the lines between art, decoration and design and a renaissance in finely-crafted, intricate objects within the context of contemporary design culture.
