Faunacrystopolis Tableware for Baccarat

Jaime Hayon delivers an uninhibited version of the Baccarat crystal, light, playful but always sophisticated, a mixture of poetry, vision and precise work on the material. Mouth blown and hand cut crystal from France.

An epicurean and a lover of life, Hayon has injected his good humour into an extraordinary set of 4 glasses, each beautifully engraved with his original drawings. The designer also reinterprets the iconic Zenith chandelier, pushing Baccarat know-how always further. For the first time, champagne colour flourishes on the twisted chandelier arms and the lampshades are made in pink and champagne crystal.

Maison Matisse Limited Collection

One of the things I admire most about Matisse’s work is the use of colour: it is so well-integrated, so special, and applied in a magical way. It reflects the traces of different cultures and the rich and dynamic journey of a unique life, at the same time. His line is a combination of precision and figuration. By studying his paintings, one can find a rich mix of elements, notably his representation of nature combined with imaginative furniture and objects from cultures that are important to him.

Henri Matisse uses solid figures; the colour contrast is magnificent. The most important point that I feel I share with Matisse is a passion for the Mediterranean: nature, the sea, the imagination and the ability to dream. The choice of blues and oranges reminds me of medinas, orange blossoms and markets of North Africa. Codes like these transports me to a Mediterranean loaded with power and magic.

I am a fervent admirer of his style and I have always found a real source of inspiration in it. Having the opportunity to transpose the inspiration I find in his work into my personal universe has been very enriching. The concept behind these vases is based on fantastical elements: forms, silhouettes and natural references that float in a sea of colours.

The shape of the vase itself is inspired by Mediterranean references and the elements that appear in Matisse’s oeuvre. Tradition and audacity come together to create unique and defined exterior lines that confer strength and character to the style and concept of the design.

FUN-TIONAL table Paola C.

FUN-TIONAL is a fantastical collection designed by Hayon, of surreal and imaginative tableware objects brings joy to every table. Each element, designed to support and liven up the table experience, is crafted with sophisticated metalworking. Even the smallest details become grandiose gestures, thanks to Hayon’s unique style which blends quality with functionality, sealed by Paola C.’s care and passion for excellence.

Happy Yeti vases for BD Barcelona

“Two years ago we presented a charming piece of ceramic which we named Happy Susto, which at the same time was a contradiction because it didn’t frighten. This new versión isn’t either but it has a new touch to it. I always found the Yeti story funny – that snow monster that wants to frighten those that go to the north pole. Converted into a vase, you can put plants in the head so that it looks like it has hair and scares a little more. The little decorations, not only have a decorative purpose, but also can have artistic value and an emotional one where a sense of humour fits in.” Jaime Hayon.

Happy Susto Vases for BD Barcelona

Little decorative items have been part of BD’s catalogue since Ettore Sottsass drafted the Shiva vase back in 1973. Little architectural pieces is what the master called them, which have naturally paralleled larger furniture items, but not less important due to their size. Among them is the humble water bottle designed by Josep M. Jujol, the imperfect vases by Xavier Mañosa, or the more iconic Showtime series by Jaime Hayon. An abundance of talent can be found in them, just the same as can be found in the pieces supporting them such as a cabinet. Their purpose is a decorative one, although for us, they carry an emotional and artistic value. They are timeless and with the passing of time we continue to add designs to a collection that continues to grow in importance within the range we have on offer. Several months ago we presented our chandelier REmix collection by Curro Claret, and now we inaugurate a ceramic collection which carries Jaime Hayon’s unmistakable character and humour. It’s called Happy Susto (fright in English) and is made in a couple of sizes, colours and finishes.
