“Arflex has had the audacity and the farsightedness, in the course of the years, to cooperate with some of the greatest and prize-awarded architects and designers. Some icons are still in Arflex collection. The armchair HUG is our answer for a new iconic design, made to measure for Arflex”.With these words the designers Claesson Koivisto and Rune described their project “Hug”, realized for Salone del mobile in 2013, after only one year, considering the big success obtained,
They have designed also the love seat in order to meet the different aesthetic expressions. The love seat Hug creates a frame for a comfortable and relaxing place, which protects from the frenzy of life. It’s a sofa with reduced sizes, to create a comfortable relax area in the own living room, which invites to sit, relax and embrace.
