Delicate in appearance, the Silhouette Tapestry provides an elegant addition to your living space, intricately handcrafted from 100% hand-spun Afghan wool. The tapestry subtly introduces colour, offering personality to each image depicted through delicate stroke illustration.
Designed to be enjoyed from many viewpoints, the chain stitch embroidery emphasizes the sensuousness of the graphic, with several silhouettes of imaginary characters coexisting and intertwining in a beautiful composition. Perfect for adding depth and tactility to the home, the Silhouette Tapestry sits beautifully above a sofa in a living room or placed on the wall of a grand staircase.
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.
