He is the golden child of Spanish interior design. Born in Madrid, trained in the famous Fabrica in Italy, and now settled in London, Jaime Hayon quickly rose to international fame, working on his own projects and designing fo such companies as Mooi and Swarovski. Hayton skillfully plays with forms, styles and colours, combining otherwise dissociated elements into homogeous compositions that always carry through his own individual style.
His works are both extravagant and simple, exuberant yet subdued. Refusing to follow tradition, Hayon blazes his own trail drawing inspiration from underground art and street style to create designs to the highest quality and value. Always experimenting, whatever creative path he choses to takes, his ultimate desire is to conceive innovative projects that serve the customers both in terms of aesthetic beauty and funcionality.
Asked if he had any advice for the youth Jaime answered:
‘to be themselves.
not to copy anyone else.
every person is unique, if they look at themselves and
believe in themselves, then they will make great work.’
