Jaime Hayon is a Spanish artist born in Madrid in 1974. The so-called "Almodovar of design" hasn't stopped designing avant-garde pieces since then. Breaking down the boundaries between design, art and decoration, the member of Wallpaper's top 100 contemporary designers has built a world that's complex yet sophisticated. With a talent for bringing fantasy and restraint together, Jaime Hayon has become a benchmark figure in contemporary design with his signature style that has twice earned him the Elle Decoration International Design award (2006 and 2012), as well as the Spanish National Design Award in 2021.
The bold and visionary former curator of the Lisbon Art Biennial designs furniture and lighting from his Italian and Catalan offices as well as the interiors of top international hotels such as Barcelo Torre in Madrid.
From September 2022 to April 2023 the event "Jaime Hayon: InfinitaMente" is held, the first large-scale exhibition of Jaime Hayon's work to be held in Spain, launched on the occasion of the World Design Street festival in Valencia, World Design Capital 2022.
Packed with color and emotion, Jaime Hayon's work brings in artisan expertise and radiates a joie de vivre that is dear to Maison Matisse and its namesake's legacy. The three limited-edition vases that he has designed for the brand on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Henri Matisse (1869 collection) reflect these shared values.
