The Hug armchair is our response for a new, iconic design, tailor-made for Arflex. It is our hope that it will earn the right to stand proudly among the classics of the their collection.

We aimed for a particular silhouette. A friendly, recognisable gesture that speaks directly to the heart – the hug. The friendly and welcoming gesture, seen most clearly in the ‘open-armed’ position of the armrests, is meant as a universal invitation: “Come, sit with me a while and I’ll put you at ease”.

It has steel legs, as well as a leg frame finished in solid wood, both available in a range of colours and finishes. Each and every part of the armchair has been carefully designed to give great flexibility to the customer as well as being beautiful to look at and also rational to manufacture and transport. A high-back club chair that has a more private repose than the armchair, a smaller side chair for dining or meeting, as well as dining and meeting tables and coffee tables are also part of the Hug range.
