Hayon conceived the name and inspiration for the chair from the curvaceous form of the elephant, paying homage to the beauty of organic, free-flowing shapes and grand physical forms. With a supportive seat shell and high armrests that resemble from the side two large elephant ears, the chair's impactful, evocative silhouette is a stunning addition to a contemporary interior space. Whether used as a dining or desk chair, the JH28 provides a cocoon of support and long-lasting comfort, available in a range of colourways with a black slender steel base.
Spanish artist and industrial designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974.
In 1997, he began working as a researcher at Fabrica, Benetton Group’s communication and research centre in Treviso, Italy. 2004 saw the start of Hayon’s individual career and he has kept himself busy with a spectrum of eclectic projects. From toys, to modern furniture and interior design as well as artistic installations, his boldness has been to transcend the borders of the often separated worlds of art and design, comfortably bridging the two whilst embedding them with his own unique style.
