An instant classic, the Hug armachair and dining chair designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune for Arflex is both unequivocally modern and welcomingly tactile.


January 24th, 2014

Presented at the 2013 Milan Fair, the Hug armchair and dining chair are fast becoming Arflex signature pieces. Claesson Koivisto Rune wanted to create a particular, welcoming silhouette that would set the Hug as an Arflex classic. The friendly, recognisable shape encompasses all of these warm aspects but also, speaks directly to the heart – the hug.


With a high level of seating comfort and the very best quality upholstery solutions, the Hug chairs have been carefully designed to give great flexibility and comfort to the customer, whilst also being aesthetically beautiful.


Each and every part of the Hug armchair and dining chairs has been carefully designed to give great flexibility to its user as well as being equally beautiful to look at.
