Vico Lounge Chair
Jaime Hayon’s playful aesthetic receives the Cassina treatment with the Vico lounge chair. The project is named after the designer’s son as a special tribute, as it unearths our innate desire to nest, to curl up in an organic shape and relax, without sacrificing the contemporary form, structure, and comfort which characterizes Italian design. During his process Hayon researched the heritage of Italian design and studied Cassina’s archives — in particular from the 1950’s and 60’s. For more, see the Vico sofa.

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.
