Describing the art of arranging flowers, “Ikebana” is a Japanese tradition dating back to the 7th century. The stunning Fritz Hansen Ikebana vase from Jaime Hayon, shaped from mouth-blown glass, draws on this tradition to honour the whole flower, with a brushed brass or steel frame that is designed to separate and celebrate individual flower stems.
Part of the Fritz Hansen Ikebana collection.
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.
