This Jaime Hayon tray is the sofa’s best friend - simultaneously expressive and functional.
The handle provides an extra dimension as both a sculpture and a functional tool to move the tray around. In 2016, Fritz Hansen Objects was born. Ever since, the most stunning vases, amazing pillows and much more have added another dash of beauty to beautiful homes. Objects enhances the Fritz Hansen collection and enrichens it with accessories for the design savvy and quality oriented home.
Hayon’s Spanish heritage and sense of humour are inherent in everything he creates, from lounge to dining chairs.
"It is important to remember that my design is made for humans – to be used by humans. I believe that design should provoke emotions. Design should make you feel good. Create happiness."
As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so imminent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, working closely with the legendary image-maker and agitator Oliviero Toscani. In a short time he was promoted from student to head of their Design Department. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with his collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, later followed by interior design and installations.
