12 Works Of Divine Design By Jaime Hayón, Maison&Objet 2010 Designer Of The Year
9. Funghi Table Lamps Designed For Metalarte
The Funghi ceramic table lamps are as divine as Hayón intended them to be. Sleek, sexy, earthy, and irresistible. Metalarte
10. Bastone Table and Floor Light Collection for Metalarte
The Bastone (Italian "stick," plural Bastoni) Collection is a new one, inspired by Hayón's propensity to move frequently. Enjoying the humor in dragging his own lamps from place to place, Hayón created Bastoni with handles and coil spring-looking grips to make it easier! Metalarte
This lamp is the "Double Bastone."
11. Green Chicken Rocker
Almost as if he felt sorry for the common chicken, Hayón created a larger than life, unmistakable, unavoidable beauty of a Green Chicken with a saddle and a rocker to raise his status in life and make him functional. No chicken will be considered common again.
12. Swarovski Sparkle Shady Chandelier
Hayón emphasizes transformation in his creation of the Sparkle Shady Chandelier. It is, first of all, not one lighting fixture, but a series of hanging lamps, all of which can be interchanged by placement and altered by color change. The Swarovski crystals provide just the right amount of reflection to play light games with your design on the chandelier's surroundings.
You have to admire how stunning the Swarovski Sparkle Shady looks with the Multileg Table, featured above.
An added treat...
13. Seasonal portrait of "Bunny Hayón"
It's always nice to find humility and self-humor in great talent!
Jaime Hayón's designs go far beyond what I represented here today; I could only attempt to hit the range of his abilities. I recommend that you visit his website, Hayón Studio, and lose yourself there for an afternoon or more. Mr. Hayón is an original, an icon of this century's "design artists."
