Spanish designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica – the Benetton-funded design and communication academy in Italy – in 1997 where he directed the design department until 2003. Hayon set up his own studio practice in the year 2000 and dedicated fully himself  to his personal projects from 2003 onward, today he is one of the most acclaimed creators worldwide. His singular vision has been exposed in venues like the: Vivid Gallery, Mak Vienna, Groninger Museum, Aram Gallery, London’s Design Museum, Mudac Museum, Gallery Thomas in Munich, Walker Art Center, Centre Pompidou and more recently at the Galerie kreo in Paris for a solo show, « Game on » in 2015. Today his works are an integral part of permanent collections of some of these institutions.

Hayon’s esteem and knowledge of artisan skills and his inherent creativity has allowed him to push the boundaries of many mediums and functions, resulting in collections for very diverse clients. His concern for the conservation of craft skills has joined his path with high-end traditional companies concerned with the evolution of their work. Examples of this are his collaborations with Baccarat, Choemon in Japan, Bosa Ceramiche and Lladro.

He has created furniture ranges for iconic danish company Fritz Hansen, Magis, Established and Sons, Bisazza, B.D. Barcelona, Se London, Bernhardt Design, Ceccotti and Moooi. Hayon has designed various lighting fixtures collections for Metalarte and also in collaboration with Swarovski and Baccarat. He has created accessories for Piper Heidsieck, Gaia and Gino, The Rug Company. These collections have put Hayon at the forefront a new wave of creators that blurred the lines between art, decoration and design and a renaissance in finely-crafted, intricate objects within the context of contemporary design culture. Adding to his acclaimed intramurals for Madrid’s La Terraza del Casino restaurant and Camper footwear stores, Hayon is currently working on interiors for leading hotels, restaurants and retail establishments around the world that have become platforms to create special objects and functional and non functional elements.

Most recently, he has completed Octium, a jewelry shop in Kuwait, the Faberge Salon in Geneva, Switzerland and the Info Center for the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands. Hayon’s latest Restaurant, Le sergent recruteur in Paris, is a good example of elegance and artistic approach to the interior world.

His work has appeared in the most prestigious art and design publications worldwide. He has won numerous awards including ‘Best Installation’ by Icon Magazine, ‘Breakthrough Creator’ by Wallpaper Magazine, Elle Deco International Award (2006 and 2012), ‘Best International Designer’ by Elle Deco Germany (2008), ‘Best Designer’ for Elle Deco Japan (2008), ‘Designer of the Year’ by AD Russia (2009) and by Maison Objet (2010), among many others. In 2008, Jaime Hayon was guest of honor at Belgium’s Interieur Biennial, the youngest person ever to receive this accolade.

Times Magazine included Hayon as one of the 100 most relevant creators of these times and Wallpaper Magazine has listed him as one of the most influential creators too. With offices in Italy, Spain and Japan, Jaime Hayon’s main interest is to find challenges and new perspectives continuously.

kreo in motion

‘kreo in motion’ is a series of short films re-imagining pieces of the gallery through the eye of talented motion designers and animators! Every month a series of 3 animations will be posted at regular intervals. Each series will be dedicated to the creative practice of a different motion designer - blank canvas to …

Hymy side table by Jake Tyas

Initially inspired by Jaime Hayon’s 'Hymy' side table, illustrator and motion designer Jake Tyas plays with the anthropomorphic quality of the piece by transforming it into a character, surrounded by a gang of similar-looking creatures. In the short, the characters fill the screen, fighting for space as they expand until ultimately popping like balloons, one by one. Only the central character remains and slowly deflates, to finally transform into Jaime's Hymy side table.

Game On Side Table by Kirill Pyrev

Playfulness is at the centre of Kirill’s second animation, as the motion designer composes a delightful image of Jaime Hayon’s equally playful ‘Game On’ side table, with a lively and rhythmic tune. In this animation, Kirill deconstructs an imaginary slab of marble to reveal Jaime Hayon’s patterned side table, composed of Carrara white marble. The repetition of the circular geometric pattern all along the table creates a striking contrast with the natural veins of the marble.
