Jaime Hayon is the most intriguing figure in new Spanish design.

He has energy, talent and a style of his own, which are all distilled into the Showtime collection he has designed for BD, the most prestigious Spanish design company. This happy encounter between a young designer and a veteran producer has led to the birth of a furniture collection meant for the home, but which has the adaptability and the personality needed for contract furnishing. A collection in which plastics consort with upholstery, the gleam of lacquered wood and the tradition of fine ceramics. In these contrasts between classicism and modernity, Showtime reflects what has always been the very essence of BD. Come and see.


Jaime Hayon

Born in Madrid in 1974, Jaime Hayon can boast one of the most glittering careers to be seen in the recent history of contemporary design. Although born and trained in Madrid, he was forged as a designer with Fabrica, the breeding ground of creativity run by Benetton near the Italian city of Treviso, where he arrived in 1997, when he had barely turned 24, to work under Oliviero Toscani, who would soon put him in charge of the design department. It was at Fabrica that he first worked with BD on the Mail Me project. In 2004, Hayon decided to branch out on his own, so he settled in Barcelona and began working on a number of projects while also exhibiting his more personal work in art galleries. His exhibition entitled Mediterranean Digital Baroque, at London’s David Gill Gallery, and the bathroom collection that he designed for ArtQuitect marked the start of his meteoric international rise, which was established with the Showtime collection for BD and his subsequent work with such companies as Metalarte, Camper, Lladró, Bisazza, Swarovsky and Moooi. Hayon currently lives and works in London.
