Established in 2002 - HAY has grown to become one of KLAUS’ signature lines. It’s an essential brand for our clients as it’s become known for its wide variety of designs and most importantly its accessible price points. Looking at HAY I feel that it really reflects our identity with it's playfulness and youthful approach to design.
During it’s 15 years of representation at KLAUS, HAY has become a major force in the industry; branching out from home wares and residential applications, to making a presence in corporate environments as the lines between these fields continue to blur. Behind Hay's ingenious and surprising designs lies a modern way of thinking: the designers are given a full creative freedom to move forward the things that they like, as long as they follow Hay's main principles: architectonic, design and technological ambitions and sustainability.
HAY’s unique approach to design welcomes the input and designs of a wide range of some well known established designers, all the while nurturing and promoting up and coming designers has made for an innovative collection that resonates with those well versed in the field and those who are just experiencing it for the first time.
Hay's furniture, lighting and interior products have become iconic pieces of modern Danish design.
Gam Fratesi’s Silhouette Sofa series is characterized by the smooth curve of the sofa’s back, which seamlessly combines a strong character with a simple, organic expression. With an angular front view and defining piping details, the sofa appears compact and economical with space, yet is light and spacious and offers generous seating.

Rounded edges and soft cushions create a milder, relaxed tone with the Mags Soft Sofa. Retaining the same strong aesthetic presence as its firmer, more pared back sibling, this version takes on a more fluid, poetic silhouette.
