The Spanish artist and designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974. Growing up in Spain in the 80s was for him a period offering an explosion of emotions that has later influenced him as a designer. As a young man, he became absorbed in sub-cultures, which laid the foundation for the humoristic and detailed figurative language in his works. After having studied and taught design, Jaime went solo - first, with his collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture and later with interior design and installations. Jaime's artistic and creative skills have resulted in collections for a host of clients such as Fritz Hansen, Cassina, Baccarat and many more. Jaime lives in Valencia and has offices in London, Barcelona and Treviso. He has won numerous awards, and his works have been exhibited in art and design publications worldwide.
