“As a designer, you normally want your designs to be noticed,” laughs Spanish artist / designer Jaime Hayon. “And spot lamps are usually anonymous and ignored. With the Passepartout Lamps, I wanted a versatile lamp in a decorative design that could easily fit into any type of spatial environment. So we pictured the environment and then we pictured a frame to simply enhance it. Like a Passe-Partout. Et voilà.”
Whether you need lighting for a large, expansive space or a narrow corridor, for a cosy home environment or a welcoming workspace, the Passepartout Lamp emits a light that’s surprisingly calm and tranquil. Add to that built-in LED technology that ensures a high quality light emission that’s also energy-efficient, custom designed so the light is uniformly dispersed throughout a space. The lamp comes in matt white in different shapes that’s decorative without drawing too much attention to itself.
Choose one style for a consistent look or group them together to create a unique design statement.
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.
CATCH by Jaime Hayon is a chair that welcomes you with open arms. Almost like limbs, the armrests extend outwards ready to embrace you as you sit down. The lightness of the curves are counterbalanced by a sturdy base in this eye catching design with plenty of personality. “Hayon created this witty person-ification to be a comfortable chair able to accommodate various body types,” explains Martin Kornbek Hansen. “It’s his harmonious construction of curves in this inviting shape that won us over at &tradition. In a terrific chair destined to become an icon.”
