Fritz Hansen introduce a new way to create an intimate office landscape

Fritz Hansen release a new two-seater sofa perfect for small impromptu meetings.

The office landscape has changed quite a bit in the last number of years. A change in focus from traditional meeting rooms to breakout spaces and informal meeting pods. Technology has allowed us to become more flexible in our work patterns. In the last year, workplaces are trying to encourage employees back into the office resulting in softer more casual office design that encourages interaction and movement but with comfort and flexibility. 

The new two seater sofa ‘Ro’ from the Republic of Fritz Hansen is the perfect example of this. Initially launched in 2013 as an armchair, designer Jaime Hayon has rethought his original design and created this two-seater sofa while still maintaining the Ro’s characteristic curvy and playful identity.

The Ro has the ability to create intimate meeting environments within an office landscape providing a sense of privacy. The word Ro in Danish translates as tranquillity suggesting it is the perfect place to escape often manic and noisy office environments. One of the benefits is increased productivity due to greater employee satisfaction but it also allows easier reconfiguration of space if and when needed.
