Hayon's inspiration for the chair comes from the magnificent, curvaceous form of the elephant, paying homage to both the creature's strength and soft silhouette of free-flowing lines. The chair's shell envelops the user into a cosy cocoon of supportive comfort, ideal for sitting for long periods of time when dining or relaxing. Available with an upholstered seat shell in premium Kvadrat fabric, united with a slender coated steel frame in black, the JH29 is a defining, modern dining chair, suitable for a range of interior spaces.
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.
