LYS & ...


We are happy to present HAY’s new Mags Sofa, as seen on the Maison et Objet in Paris, now with even more modules to combine… You will soon be able to try it out in our showroom (from week 09/2010).

„What makes a sofa great is everything that cannot be seen – suspension, composition of the foam and durability of the upholstery. HAY Studio has given all of these components high priority when designing Mags. The high arm rests and deep seat make Mags ideal for relaxation. Its firm composition with no detachable cushions make it flexible because cushions and blankets can be moved around according to preference. 
On one hand a sofa has to be a comfortable place to sit. On the other hand it needs good design, which is dependent on the proportions. The design philosophy behind the sofa Mags is that a sofa must have a simple design because it is visually dominant. However, simple designs demands perfection in every detail. 
Because Mags is composed of modular units of different length as well as a corner and chaiselong module it can be designed to fit any room and need. Large button décor is optional.“ Source:
