With HAY’s Bjørn sofa, the aim was to create an informal and welcoming sofa with a minimalistic expression that was equally as comfortable as it looked. The result is an upholstered sofa with fixed covers in an upholstered aluminium frame that fuses the pared back composition together and adds texture and detailing to the sofa. With its sleek silhouette and rounded edges, Bjørn is the essence of function and understated styling, making it equally suited to private and public settings.
With this sofa we wanted to make a light sofa with soft rounded shapes to make it welcoming and informal while keeping it firm. From beginning to end the design process has been very “hands on” to get exactly the right shapes, curves and stitches. The slender frame contrasts the voluminous body and legs lifts the seats from the floor making it seem lighter. The armrests seem to hug the seat. Stitching has been minimized and each seat, backrest and armrest is upholstered in just one piece of fabric to make the edges soft and round. The frame is made from extruded aluminum and available in chrome, powder coated or with upholstery in the same fabric as the sofa.
Solid wood frame: Polyurethane foam, spring system
Frame: Powder coated, chromed or upholstered base in cast and extruded aluminium.
Upholstered or Powder coated grey or chromed frame
