Jaime Hayon is pushing the limits in several mediums and areas of use. This has resulted in collections for different types of clients. He has collaborated with glass and pottery companies such as Baccarat, Lladró and Choemon and created furniture for Fritz Hansen, Magis, Ceccotti, & Tradition and Moooi, to name a few. He has designed accessories for Bosa, Paola C, Cassina, Gaia & Gino and The Rug Company. In 2013, he designed his first watch collection for OROLOG. These collections have put Jaime Hayon 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.
He has also held a number of exhibitions and installations around the world like FUNTASTICO, a retrospective of his artistic work shown recently at the Groninger Museum and the Holon Design Museum in Tel Aviv. He has won many prestigious awards, including ‘Best Designer‘ 2016 at the ELLE Deco International Awards, ‘Best Installation’ by Icon Magazine and ‘Designer of the year’ for AD Russia 2009. Time Magazine included Jaime 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. Jaime Hayon’s main interest is to find challenges and new perspectives continuously. He currently has offices in Italy, Spain and Japan.
Backstage Tokyo showcases a selection of 12 very different projects, emphasising the significance of the process behind each universe. From initial sketch, to trials to finished pieces, the exhibition offers insight into the creative process of one of the most renowned Spanish designers of our time: Jaime Hayon. From hand turned wood to upholstery, ceramics or glass, in Backstage there are examples of both handmade and industrial processes traditional and modern using a wide variety of materials and techniques.
Each of Hayon’s designs are expressed in a unique and exceptional language, the “Hayon Universe”, which puts him on the frontline of international design. His work transmits strength, character and passion but is at the same time full of delicate and exquisite forms, paying close attention to detail and infusing everyday objects with a sense of humor and fun. True to his Mediterranean roots he has mastered colour and light techniques that give his pieces a bright and bold character. The audacity with which he is capable of fusing art and design makes each piece, each drawing, each embellishment, perfectly and undeniably his.
Hayon’s esteem for knowledge of artisan skills and his inherent creativity have 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. The choice of Jaime Hayon for an exhibition hosted in Japan is not arbitrary. His creations perfectly reflect a shared and dearly held value both in Spain and Japan: the marriage between craftsmanship and industry and the respect for tradition as it blends with modernity.
Hayon’s exhibition as Maison et Objet – Scenes d’Interieur’s designer of the year 2010 is a journey into the creative process behind this designer/artist’s work. “Moving Ideas” shows a selection of experiments in art and design as an insight into Hayon’s world. The exhibit displayed the different phases of the creative process, from sketches to prototypes, with a selection of essential pieces that range from Hayon’s first installations, like the Mediterranean Digital Baroque, to previews of his latest unveiled pieces. “Moving Ideas” is a comprehensive view of this prominent artist/designer’s ingenious creations.
The Kutani Choemon collection was presented for the first time during Tokyo design week 2010. Custom made tables and lamps were designed by Hayon to showcase the pieces.
For the 21st edition of the International biennial Interieur in Kortrijk, the Foundation Interieur managed to snare the Spanish designer Jaime Hayon. The youngest and the first Spanish guest of honour ever, is known for his frivolous design and unbridled imagination. Since the first edition in 1968, an international guest has been chosen carefully for his ability to surprise, to reflect and preferably outpace the spirit of the times. Famous designers such as Raymond Loewy, Verner Panton, Andrea Branzi and Jean Nouvel have filled this role. Guest of honour of Interieur 08 is Jaime Hayon. This Spanish enfant terrible is considered as a trail-blazing talent in the world of design. The 21st edition will be held from 17 to 26 October in the Xpo halls in Kortrijk, Belgium.

The creations in The Fantasy collection Hayon, mirror the perfect fusion between the artistic quality of the Spanish porcelain brand and the playful, fantasy quality the designer brings to his works. Hayon has designed a shoe collection for Camper. It is characterized by the fusion of styles, soft and organic forms and the surprising mix of materials that define the personality of the wearer. Jaime Hayon Works, the first monograph about the renowned creative, presents the full spectrum of his work. Ranging from clear and harmonious to playfully extravagant, all of the examples in this book attest to his inimitable grasp of form, style and colour.
