Classic meets contemporary in Studio Dimensione’s new Fritz Hansen showroom

The Danish brand’s collaboration with Jaime Hayon is the centerpiece in the renovated space.

To celebrate its new showroom in Studio Dimensione, the Republic of Fritz Hansen showcased some of its most iconic pieces alongside the Lune Sofa, its collaboration with Jaime Hayon. The Madrid-based designer’s “dramatic yet subtle” design aesthetic sits well with his “spot-on interpretation of the Fritz Hansen DNA,” says the Danish brand’s CEO Jacob Holm. It’s a cool combination of the 145-year-old furniture house’s clean Nordic style and the sculptural perspective that the Spanish designer is known for.fritz-hansen-2To demonstrate the craftsmanship behind each Fritz Hansen piece, a master craftsman from the brand’s Denmark headquarters was on hand to demonstrate the hand-stitching process for its iconic Egg Chair. Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958, the trademark piece and its corresponding stitches are unique; 500 stitches in fabric and 1,100 stitches in leather are needed to construct the chair.fritz-hansen-6Hayon’s modular Lune, meanwhile, takes its inspiration from the Danish word that means “the feeling one gets when everything is just right.” The curvy sofa is capable of transforming from a simple two-seater to larger L-shapes, all while maintaining soft and sturdy cushioning.fritz-hansen-4
