Catch, Jaime Hayon’s first contribution to &tradition’s collection, is a chair that welcomes you with open arms.
Its armrests extend from the shell like literal limbs, ready to embrace you as you sit down. In addition to being a witty personification, it is also an eye-catching piece of design. Serpentine lines give it a playful lightness that is counterbalanced by a sturdy, well-balanced base and legs that ensure maximum comfort. The shell offers comfort alongside great variability. With multiple textile and leather upholstery options available from Kvadrat and CA-MO and three different options for the legs (Wooden legs, tube legs or swivel base), Catch can be adapted to almost any colour scheme. & in the 1980s, Hayon was interested in skating and grafitti culture, which had an impact on the playful, detailed, colourful and humouristic elements in his design style.
He has designed countless pieces of furniture, lighting fixtures and home accessories, hotel interiors, retail shops, a line of ceramics, shoes and his own collection of timepieces. With designs already in prominent museums around the globe, Hayon is at the forefront of a new wave of talents blurring the lines between art, decoration and design.
With offices in Italy, Spain and Japan, Hayon is a prolific designer keen on exploring new, expressive forms. Armed with a deep respect for artisan skills, finely-crafted details and a passion for play.

In a terrific chair destined to become an icon.”
