Jaime Hayon is one of a new breed of creators who not only blur the line between art and design, but also question what design actually is by pushing the boundaries of his materials. Born in Madrid, Spain in 1974, he embodies a new type of creative Renaissance man who, thanks to his interdisciplinary approach and extraordinary talent, can realize his unique stylistic language across various areas and media. His work coherently brings together diametrical opposites such as opulence and practicality, sensuality and precision as well as finesse and restraint. Using a hybrid of industrial design disciplines, craft expertise and new technology, his whimsical creations come as a breath of fresh air. Currently busy with multiple interior projects, Hayon is also collaborating with Swarovski, Baccarat, Gaia and Gino, Established and Sons and Moooi.
