Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica – the Benetton-funded design and communication academy in Italy- in 1997 where he directed the design department until 2003. Hayon set up his own studio practice in the year 2000 and dedicated himself fully to his personal projects from 2003 onward, today he is one of the most acclaimed creators worldwide.

Hayon’s esteem and knowledge of artisan skills and his inherent creativity has allowed him to push the boundaries of many mediums and functions, resulting in collections for very diverse clients. His concern for the conservation of craft skills has joined his path with high-end traditional companies concerned with the evolution of their work. Examples of this are his collaborations with Baccarat, Choemon in Japan, Bosa Ceramiche and Lladro.

He has created furniture ranges for iconic danish company Fritz Hansen, Magis, Established and Sons, Bisazza, B.D. Barcelona, Se London, Bernhardt Design, Ceccotti and Moooi. Hayon has designed various lighting fixtures collections for Metalarte and also in collaboration with Swarovski and Baccarat. He has created accessories for Piper Heidsieck, Gaia and Gino and The Rug Company. He designed his first wristwatch collection for a new Swiss watch brand OROLOG which launched in late 2013. These collections have put Jaime at the forefront a new wave of creators that blurred the lines between art, decoration and design and a renaissance in finely-crafted, intricate objects within the context of contemporary design culture.

His work has appeared in the most prestigious art and design publications worldwide. He has won numerous awards including ‘Best Installation’ by Icon Magazine, “100 Top list” and  ‘Breakthrough Creator’ by Wallpaper Magazine, Elle Deco International Award 2006 and 2012, Elle Deco Germany: ‘Best International Designer’ 2008,  ’BEST DESIGNER’ for ELLE DECO JAPAN in 2008, AD RUSSIA ‘DESIGNER OF THE YEAR’ 2009, MAISON OBJET DESIGNER OF THE YEAR 2010, among many others. In 2008, Jaime was guest of honour at Belgium’s Interieur Biennial, the youngest person ever to receive the accolade. Time magazine included Hayon as one of the 100 most relevant creators of these times and Wallpaper magazine has listed him as one of the most influential creators too.

Here is some of our favourite Jaime Hayon work.

VICO SOFA FOR CASSINA

Named after Hayon’s son, the Vico collection is comprised of a three and two seater sofa and armchair. The design has innate human desire to nest at its heart – Hayon committed himself to researching Cassina’s back catalogue with special focus on the 1950’s and 60s allowing him to pinpoint several distinctive elements regarding the sofa to develop into a contemporary context.

BISAZZA BAGNO – Hayon Collection

The collection recalls the glamour of the 1930s with a Scandinavian touch and feminine shapes. Elegance is the main trait of this innovative collection. The bathroom is the most important room in the home and it should not be hidden. With this collection, it becomes an area you want to show, a place you can keep open. The bathroom becomes a stylish room, full of charm and style, with a strong identity.
