New Idea of the Sofa
With the Can Sofa, the designer brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have designed a number of modern and flexible upholstered furniture that not only charm visually.
The intention was to design a whole new idea of the sofa and to make something that is easy, relaxed and for everyone from an naturally complicated and heavy furniture.

The special feature of the collection’s sofas and armchairs: The furniture is delivered as a flat pack - space-saving and handy. This is not only convenient for shipping and minimizing the packaging material, transport and storage space, but also for the next time when moving houses. The sofas and armchairs can be quickly and easily disassembled and moved easily to the new apartment. True to the motto: we CAN do this!
Steel Sofa with Comfortable Cushions
The steel frame of the sofa can be assembled and covered with the corresponding fabric in just a few minutes. Just place the fitting pads on it and the Can Sofa is ready for service. According to the Bouroullec brothers, the design of the furniture is “simple, relaxed and for everyone” and can be easily integrated in different living areas.
And that is why also the name of the sofa series is somehow a small encouragement "Can = We are able to do it”. Can) a little encouragement. The idea is that the design is calling to be flexible and to assemble your own piece of furniture according to your wishes.
With frames in different lacquers, fabrics and cushions in different colours the Can Sofa by Hay can be configured individually: Yes, you Can.
