flat pack sofa which you could assemble at home; this sounds a rather a bizarre thought.True, until we came across Can designed by the Bouroullec brothers for Hay. Such a great idea!


What is it? Can by Hay is a flat pack sofa which you can assemble by yourself.

What is special about it? At a glance, Can looks like a simple sofa with an informal silhouette. However, the secret is that it's a flat pack and you can assembled it in the comfort of your own home.

How is it made? A fabric band which makes up back and seat hooks on a frame in powder coated steel. Loose cushions go on top.

Who is it by? Brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are two of the most in demand designers of the twenty-first century. They are best-known for versatile pieces, which adapt to a variety of different needs and space requirements. Organic shapes and dramatic silhouettes, which can be used in a thousand different ways and complement any style.

We have chosen it because… Can by Hay has a fresh young vibe; this is the selling point of this sofa. Try Can and we promise you won’t be able to do without, practical especially if you move as you can disassemble it and put it back together again in a second.
