The result of the latest collaboration between Fritz Hansen and Jaime Hayon, the Lounge Chair JH97 strikes the perfect balance between past and future, making lounging a new art form.

When Hayon was charged with creating a new and modern lounge chair for Fritz Hansen, he looked to classical Danish design for inspiration. 

Marrying style with comfort and simplicity with sophistication, the result is a versatile chair that perfectly embodies tradition and technology.

Elegant from every angle, the open, low-slung silhouette has a contemporary feel despite its classic roots. Exaggerated armrests – wide and flat – embrace and support the body, as does the curved backrest, angled in an upright position for comfort when lounging.

Generously sized cushions appear to float within the design and are upholstered with detachable covers that allow for an easily changeable expression. The natural structure of the solid wood frame stands in beautiful contrast, and the gently rounded joints are assembled by hand in reference to Fritz Hansen’s Danish design heritage.

Perfectly proportioned with a solid frame that is elegant from every angle.  the JH97 is available in natural oak, stained oak and black ash, with a variety of leathers and fabrics.

The Fritz Hansen Lounge Chair JH97 by Jaime Hayon is available now from Cult showrooms.
