Implicit in the idea of lounging is the chance to relax and enjoy the company of others. With the large lounge version of the Palette table by Jaime Hayon, we’ve increased your opportunity for interesting exchanges and experiences. With a multi-tiered table where various shapes, sizes, colours and materials converge together. Elegance is everywhere you look in this compelling collage of materials. Starting with the option of walnut or black ash together with black marble and satin polished brass. The effect is understated yet sophisticated, merging the warmth of wood with the patterned surface of marble in contrast to the silky effect of the satin polished brass.
Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayón was born in Madrid in 1974. As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so imminent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, working closely with the legendary image-maker and agitator Oliverio Toscani. In a short time he was promoted from student to head of their Design Department, where he oversaw projects ranging from shop, restaurant and exhibition conception and design to graphics. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, followed by interior design and installation. These collections put Jaime at the forefront a new wave of creators that blurred the lines between art, decoration and design and a renaissance in finely-crafted, intricate objects within the context of contemporary design culture.
