Spanish designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica – the Benetton-funded design and communication academy in Italy – in 1997 where he directed the design department until 2003. Hayon set up his own studio practice in the year 2000 and dedicated fully himself to his personal projects from 2003 onward, today he is one of the most acclaimed creators worldwide. His singular vision has been exposed in venues like the Mak Vienna, Groninger Museum, London’s Design Museum, Mudac Museum, Walker Art Center, Centre Pompidou and more recently at the Galerie kreo in Paris for a solo show, “Game on” in 2015. Today his works are an integral part of permanent collections of some of these institutions.
Hayon’s esteem and knowledge of artisan skills and his inherent creativity has 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.
