Spanish designer Jaime Hayon (b. 1974) is one of the most acclaimed designers worldwide, and Time Magazine recently listed him as one of the 100 most relevant creators of our times.
Hayon's work is driven by an irresistible urge to create his own world where amusing, fantastic, and narrative elements combine with a keen eye for detail and finishing.
The exhibition will present the range of Hayon's work over the past ten years, from early works (2003) with which he took the world of design by storm when he created a dreamlike space comprising ceramic cactuses and strange animals, through the complex and intricate paintings and drawings that characterize him and include patterned portraits and drawings of animals and machine parts, to special projects he created for leading design companies such as Baccarat, Lladró, and Magis.
The exhibition premiered at the Groninger Museum in Holland.
