The new Baile 2020 collection reinterprets some of the best-selling products signed by Jaime Hayon.
In a joyful masquerade ball, the products have fun dressing up with strong signs and bright tones: the gestures of the design and colour express the cheerful and imaginative imagery of the Spanish designer.
“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.
Jaime Hayon ironic collection translates into a series of colourful characters talking through their funny expressions. A little theatre of candle holders, vases, teapots that interpret their function livening up the house… with extravagant and funny stories!
Folkifunki is a new collection for Vista Alegre, the renowned porcelain company founded in 1824 in Portugal. Hayon explores the boundaries between Portuguese folk culture and his own imaginative world, to create this collection of tableware and decorative objects.
This dinnerware set in porcelain stoneware is enamelled in glossy white and has decorations in black and details in 24 karat gold, applied by manual process in numerous different patterns.
When we presented the Showtime Collection back in 2006, Jaime Hayon was a unique emerging, most intriguing young character in new Spanish design. Today, he’s a consecrated author with prestige on an international scale. His designs for BD have reaped continual success due to the personality, quality, elegance, yet amusing designs, having just the right touch of romanticism and the versatility to adapt to home as well as contract. All of this is Showtime, a collection that reflects classicism and modernity – a contrast that has always been the very essence of our company. For us this has been a complete ‘ten out of ten’ project and now reaches its 10th anniversary, celebrated with new colours, lacquers and upholstery for the poltronas; more glossy lacquers and luxurious marbles for the Multi Legged cabinet and low tables; special vase finishes with gold details; and two new mirrors, King and Kong which carry Hayon’s distinct hallmark.
The verdant hills of Galicia, the citrus-fragranced boulevards of Valencia, the twinkling stars over the deep Mediterranean. The new collection of tiles takes its inspiration from the palette and dynamic movement of the Spanish landscape. A simple flip of the tiles, and entirely new vistas appear before your eyes. Elegant, vibrant, soothing, or whimsical: it’s now possible to create your own enchanting landscape.
Launched at the London Design Festival 2009, The Tournament, an installation created by Hayon consists of a gigantic chess set, with 2m high ceramic chess pieces on a specially created Bisazza mosaic glass chess board. Each of the 32 chess pieces has been handcrafted by Hayon, working with Bosa, the Italian ceramics experts in Veneto, Italy. Each chess piece is unique, having been hand-painted by himself. The Tournament was inspired by London and its history and heritage. The Battle of Trafalgar was organised like a chess game of naval strategy. Many of the chess pieces reference specific iconic buildings in London and their domes, towers and spires. Elements of the city of London and its history have been encoded on the pieces using Hayon’s very personal style.
