or Call to Order

Vico sofa by Jaime Hayon takes on a natural approach which 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. The project is a special tribute to Hayon’s son and is offered in a two-seater or three-seater sofa, as well as a lounge chair.

Hayon, always concerned with the produc­tion of finely crafted objects, thor­oughly researched the heritage of Italian design and, by study­ing Cassina’s archives in partic­u­lar from the 1950’s and 60’s, pinpointed several distinc­tive elements regard­ing the sofa to develop into a contem­po­rary context. The result is surpris­ing; the fluid­ity and sinu­os­ity of the design, person­al­ized with Hayon’s own char­ac­ter­is­tic style, has been inter­preted through a typical Cassina filter, making the piece more essen­tial and less deco­ra­tive than many of his previous projects.

Jaime Hayon

Spain (1974)

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.
