HAY’s Can collection was born when Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec set their mind to reinvigorate the concept of the sofa. They wanted to create a piece of furniture that is practical, elegant and comfortable but also relaxed and simple – a sofa for everyone. The Can sofas and armchairs come flat-packed and are assembled at home, which makes transportation and handling easier. The name Can reassures anyone having doubts about assembling the furniture. Just attach the slender metal legs to the frame, set the canvas in its place and finish off by adding the inviting, plush cushions.
In 2022, HAY updated the cushioning materials, replacing the previously used down fill with recycled polyester fibre.
