Stores by Jaime Hayon in London and Barcelona
The intention of the Together with Camper project was to give an absolute yet subtle change to the way the Camper space is envisioned. To promote a luxury ambient inside the shop, turning it into a symbol of elegance. Very special pieces were created for this shop: handmade wood tables with different and abundant legs, very much within the Hayon style. A set of hand crafted terra-cotta lamps was designed specially for the space. A new technology was developed to give these lamps an earthy yet sophisticated surface. For the cash point space, we created an unusual piece of furniture with a very "Olympic" shape, all in red. We chose a red floor in resin of a silky and glossy effect that playfully contrasts the rest of the space.
extraordinary furniture that puts fun before functionality, Jaime Hayon
is leading a new wave of European design.

The Spanish product designer Jaime Hayon recently created
a collection, Showtime, which includes the magnificently theatrical Multileg
cabinet. In a showstopping shade of petrol blue, it idiosyncratically
features legs from a plethora of historical periods. It can be bought
in one, two, four or eight pieces and can have from four to 24 legs, which
has prompted some to compare it to a centipede. Inspired by 'a love of
classic MGM musicals', the collection also features absurdly oversized
button-backed chairs in moulded plastic and quilted leather redolent of
Fifties hotel lobby chairs or sedan chairs.
