Two letter to indicate tranquility: in Danish, RO means just this. The armchair created by Jaime Hayon is designed to be a refuge in which to stop and reflect, making tranquility tangible. Like another Danish product - the legendary Egg by Arne Jacobsen, an undisputed design icon - the RO armchair envelops you like a protective shell within which to sit, curl up, change position, read, browse the Internet; here you can cut yourself off, if you wish, or you can share this cosy space with a child, in a warm and loving closeness that strengthens feelings and generates memories. The design of the chair frame is simple and elegant, a true delight for the eyes and body; it inspires tranquility both for its visual expression and its comfortable features. The name of the product definitively reflects the Nordic approach to design - which Hayon embraces here without sacrificing his Mediterranean personality - and the concept of beauty whoch that design is able to express with immediacy.
