Jaime Hayón (1974-)
« I focus on techniques. It may seem simple but it’s actually very complex. »
Jaime Hayon studied industrial design in Madrid and Paris. After his studies, he entered the Fabrica group (the research center of the Benetton group) as a designer and quickly became head of the design department.
In 2004, Hayon left the Benetton group and moved to Barcelona. During this period, he created several collections of furniture including a bathroom collection for ArtQuitect.
This marks the beginning of his international recognition which will lead him to collaborate with MetalArte, Camper and Swarovsky.
Jaime Hayon now lives and works in London.
