The ‘Can’ Flat Pack Sofa by Studio Bouroullec For Hay


The Can Sofa is a customisable flat pack sofa designed by French designer Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Danish design brand Hay. Their sofa comes as single, two or three-seater versions in muted colours, and rests on a tubular steel frame that can easily be assembled by 1 or 2 people.


With the Can sofa, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are seeking to go beyond the creation of a practical, elegant and comfortable design. Their intention is actually to reinvigorate the whole idea of the sofa itself, from something inherently complicated, to something simple, relaxed and for everyone, creating a sofa design that is aesthetically, physically and philosophically light.
