Catch Armchair by Jaime Hayon is ready to welcome you with open arms, as its armrests extend from the shell-like literal limbs. Sinuous lines give it a playful lightness that is counterbalanced by a sturdy, well-balanced base and legs that ensure maximum comfort. Offered in multiple textile and leather upholstery options available from Kvadrat and CA-MO.
During the 1980s, Hayon was inspired by skate and graffiti culture. The result of this inspiration is the Catch Armchair, available in three models. JH1 offers a base with wooden oak legs. JH2 comes with the option of a swivel base, ideal for office environments. Lastly, the base of JH15 is offered in solid steel. Each model is playful, detailed, colorful and filled with humoristic design elements.
Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon is known for creating intricate, finely crafted objects imbued with fantastical forms and energetic details. Extremely versatile, he is known for creating refined furniture for the residential and commercial markets, such as the Catch lounge for &Tradition and the Ro chair for Fritz Hansen. His whimsicality emerges fully in playful designs that often take on an anthropomorphic quality. Hayon crafts a range of unique creatures that grace vases, carpets, dishes, figurines, and more.
Hayon’s artistic vision first garnered attention in the “Mediterranean Digital Baroque” exhibition at London’s David Gill Gallery in 2003 and with his Mon Cirque collection of hand-molded circus characters. These collections put Hayon at the forefront of a new wave in the contemporary design scene that blurred the lines between art, decoration, and design.
After founding Hayon Studio in 2001, his award-winning commissions have spanned mediums, including furniture for b.d. barcelona, Cassina, Fritz Hansen, &Tradition, and Magis; lighting for Parachilna, Metalarte, and Swarovski; and objects for Bisazza, Lladró, and Baccarat. He has also designed interiors for leading hotels, restaurants, museums, and retail establishments worldwide.
