Inspired by the grand physical form of the elephant, Hayon celebrates the animal's beautifully curvaceous and impactful form through his dining chair design. Part of the Elefy family, the JH31 unites a natural oak or walnut wooden base with a comforting upholstered seat, available in a range of premium fabrics. Defined by soft, smooth flowing lines and a supportive, cosy seat shell, the JH31 creates a perfect space for sitting for long periods of time when dining or for using as a modern desk chair.
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.
