&Tradition Fly Chair
&Tradition Fly Chair by Space Copenhagen. “We wanted to make a chair which had the character of being a piece of furniture, with sculptural elements and wood,” explain Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, founders of SPAC E Copenhagen. “At the same time, it had to be very comfortable"
- The FLY Series has achieved just that – it has a sculptural feel while not sacrificing any of its comfort.
- The series has generous proportions and is made up of two sofas and an armchair which can be used together or separately.
- It references classic Nordic styles and techniques, like the comb-back slatted backrest, organic shapes, and solid craftsmanship.
- At the same time, the FLY Series has a cutting-edge modern lounge look, achieving a subtle balance between tradition and innovation that we champion as a brand.
- One of the sofas in the series comes with side tables built to form part of the frame. Lending humorous literacy to the name FLY, they extend from each side of the sofa like wings.

Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon 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 Oliviero Toscani. In a short time he was promoted from student to head of their Design Department. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with his collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, later followed by interior design and installations. Jaime Hayon has created the FAVN™ sofa for Fritz Hansen. It is designed with great attention to detail and consist of very few elements. Creating FAVN has been an experimental dialogue. Thinking in a holistic approach, discussing who we are and how we live. Back to the human approach, while being innovative and taking risks. "I wanted to create a form that embraces you, something really organic – that’s why we named it FAVN. At the same time I wanted to explore a technique – I always focus on techniques. It looks really simple, but it’s really complex.
