A touch of humor by Jaime Hayon – Research and Theory – Studio Index
Rigby & Rigby’s Senior Designer, Tania Blanco, has been researching the well known Spanish Artist and Designer, Jaime Hayon.
Jaime has broken the lines between art, decoration and design. his playful aesthetic has made him be present in the most prestigious art and design fairs, and publications worldwide. Since founding his studio in 2001, his wide client has expanded including decorative objects for Baccarat and Lladro, lighting and furniture for Fritz Hansen, Bernhardt and Parachilna.
Jaime’s work has also expanded to the world of interiors. His interiors include retail establishments, hotels, restaurants and museums worldwide. His interiors combine his playful touch brought through vibrant colours, fun sculptures and unique crittal windows against more sophisticated dark and neutral palette spaces.
It’s not surprising that he was asked to design a playground in South Korea for which he has won the Wallpaper Design Awards 2021. This children’s playground takes you through a journey of wonders where his two-dimensional characters become three-dimensional. In 2020 Swarovski collaborated with Jaime Hayon to create an incredible black and white carousel located in the Austrian countryside. The monochrome design sparkles with 15 million Swarovski crystals across the ceiling and wall panels. These are punctuated with the fun and unique characters that have become synonymous with Hayon’s fairy tale vision.
