Jaime Hayon has had a long and illustrious career for somebody so young. After training as an industrial designer in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica, Benetton Group’s communication research centre, in 1997 where he directed the design department until 2003. Jaime established his own studio practice in 2000 and has kept his hands full with eclectic projects: from toys, to furniture, lighting, ceramics and glass to interior design, curatorial roles and artistic installations. His boldness has served to transcend the borders of the often separated worlds of art and design. Hayon’s esteem and knowledge of artisan skills and his inherent creativity has allowed him to push the boundaries of many mediums and functions. Hayon has received many awards and Times magazine named him as one of the 100 most relevant creators of these times.
