The fact that Jaime Hayon’s designs launch me head over heels IN LOVE is no exaggeration. Hayon’s work exemplifies great design; functional, innovative, creative, and playful, plain and simple. The astonishing breadth of Hayon’s work encompasses not only product and furniture design, but art, fashion, and interiors. This year Hayon showcases his astounding talent at Salone Milan with his many collaborations including three exclusive worldwide launches.

The Arpa Chair is just one piece from Hayon’s Collection II for London based design house, Sé. Inspired by musical instruments and insects, the signature piece of the collection, inspired by the harp, reinterprets the classic wing chair form with refreshing modernity.
The Candy Light for Baccarat returns to Salone following its debut at the 2011 Milan Furniture Fair. With its elegant crystal shade and porcelain base in three finishes; platinum (pictured), white and gold, its bold design sits equally well in a modern or traditional aesthetic.
The playful ensemble of trays and dishes, from Hayon’s FORMA collection of tableware, is produced in collaboration with Japanese porcelain producer Maruwakaya. This collection uses traditional Japanese craftsmanship to execute Hayon’s exploration of the relationship between food, culture, and tableware.
These curvaceous, multi-purpose chairs designed by Hayon for Copenhagen based design company, &tradition, make their first appearance at Salone Milan. Ergonomically designed, both function and comfort are catered to with a choice of finishes from the naked shell to Kvadrat’s quality fabrics or even leather.
Hayon goes to town with his imagination with this little trio of whimsical animals for Baccarat. Half porcelain, half crystal, they are a playful take on the traditional sweet jar.
Hayon makes his first foray into the technological realm with his new company, Orolog, which designs and manufactures innovative Swiss made time pieces with luxurious Hermes leather straps.
