plenum is designed to embrace any space or social demand, from collaboration to concentration, or relaxation, fulfilling the needs that arise in the modern workplace. ‘in creating plenum, the overall objective was to challenge the concept of traditional office furniture and create a feeling of home,’ jaime hayon explains. combining comfort with functionality to create a public-space seat with a domestic touch, the sofa system can be used in any open office, lounge or hotel lobby, offering the possibility of a refuge, suitable for private concentration, working in groups or being social in pairs.

‘plenum is born from a family of hayon designs: the ro™ and the fri™ chairs as well as the lune™ sofa,’ notes christian andresen, fritz hansen‘s head of design. ‘every one of these items were originally designed for the private home but have proven to fit perfectly in numerous public spaces all over the world,’ andresen concludes, ‘in fritz hansen we value the fact that designers work with us, not for us. that is how we achieve the best results.’

soft shapes, organic curves and interesting colors separate plenum from traditional square, impersonal office furniture. ‘it is important to remember that my design is made for humans – to be used by humans,’ hayon adds, ‘I believe that design should provoke emotions. design should make you feel good and most of all – create happiness.’
