Jaime Hayon

Born in Madrid in 1974, designer Jaime Hayon, with his ingenuity, boldness, and humour, has injected his freewheeling creativity into our daily lives. He became the leading figure at Fabrica, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy. Through his line of work, Hayon came in contact with talents around the world specializing in design, photography, fashion, and illustration, which became inspiration for his eclectic style which serves as a channel of communication between art and industrial design. In 2004, Hayon curated an installation art exhibition named Mediterranean Digital Baroque in London. The exhibition showcased the grandeur and whimsical beauty which are the hallmarks of Baroque Art, bringing together traditional hand paintings and digital technology. Subsequently, Hayon broke out on his own to open up his personal studio. In 2005, Hayon curated the Mon Cirque installation art exhibition, which marked the first time the artist made use of ceramics to work on a series of lovely works with refined lines. The exhibition became an overnight sensation, while reputable companies from different sectors beckoned the rising star. Ever since then, Hayon has treaded freely in the world of furniture, clothing, toys, and interior design, working with reputable names such as Barcelona Design, Moooi, Magis, Camper, SWAROVSKI, and Lladro, etc. Hayon is also the recipient of numerous awards, including the 10 breakthrough creators worldwide by Wallpaper Magazine, the Icon Magazine Best Show Award at London Design Week, and the Elle Deco International Design Award. The Spanish Cultural Department also recognized Hayon as the most talented young artist. Today, Hayon continues to surprise with his diverse design, revealing the love for life and beauty embraced by the Spanish.
