Jaime Hayon has had a long and illustrious career for somebody so young. He trained as an industrial designer in Madrid and Paris and went onto work as a researcher in Fabrica, Benetton Group’s communication research centre in Italy. In 2004, he set out on his own and has kept his hands full with eclectic projects: from toys, to furniture and interior design as well as artistic installations. His boldness has been transcending the borders of the often separated worlds of art and design. Hayon’s work has developed in diverse areas: from curatorial roles, to those of an artist, to that of a designer. He has developed numerous collections in the furniture, lighting, bathroom, ceramics and interiors fields and his art installations have been a constant throughout his independent career.
