An illustrious career showered with accolades and high-profile projects epitomize the multidisciplinary artist Jaime Hayón, born and trained in Madrid—one of the greatest and most relevant of the 21st century.
Jaime Hayón’s career took off after joining Fabrica—the Benetton-funded design and communications academy in Italy, a veritable hotbed of contemporary artists and designers—in 1997, where he headed the design department until 2003. He decided to go it alone soon afterwards, setting up his own studio in Barcelona and turning into one of the world’s most acclaimed designers today.
After his exhibit entitled “Mediterranean Digital Baroque” at the David Gill Gallery in London—one of the most prestigious on the international scene—and after designing one of the most archetypal and celebrated bathroom collections in the last few decades for ArtQuitect, international recognition for Jaime Hayón followed soon after, and he began working with prestigious companies such as Metalarte, BD Barcelona, Lladró, Bisazza, Swarovsky, and Moooi.
His amazing craft skills and brilliant creativity are what make him a truly universal artist and designer, whose works transcend limits to create unique collections that appeal to a wide range of tastes.
His works range from furniture design for Fritz Hansen, Magis, Established and Sons, Se London, Bernhardt Design, and Ceccotti, to designing Swiss watches for OROLOG, lighting fixtures for Metalarte, accessories for Piper Heidsieck, Gaia y Gino, and The Rug Company. He has also collaborated on interior design contracts, such as Madrid’s La Terraza del Casino, Camper footwear stores, the Salón Fabergé in Geneva, and his latest restaurant project—Le Sergent Recruteur in Paris—among many others of great renown.
The new collections or projects of this designer, who was born in Madrid and currently resides in London, are regularly featured in the most prestigious art and design publications worldwide, in testament to his standing as one of the most influential creators on the international scene today.
