The long beak and great pouch of the pelican served as inspiration for this rounded pitcher made of glazed porcelain. Serve water, milk, coffee or juice. This imaginative container manages to blend a sense of elegance with humor.
Madrid-born Jaime Hayon is one of the rock stars of the new design wave, keeping studios in Italy, Spain and the UK and turning out a prolific array of products and interiors for brands as diverse as Camper and Baccarat, Established & Sons and Faberge, Magis and Lladró—where he has in recent years kick started the heritage porcelain house with highly irreverent, collectable works. His relationship with Italian house Bosa Ceramiche goes back to his early days.
"Humor reflects very much who I am…my character," says Spanish-born designer Jaime Hayon, known for his bold and whimsical design sense. As a teenager in the 1970s, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art and then opted to study industrial design in Madrid and Paris. Joining Fabrica, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, he began working closely with legendary image-maker and agitator Oliviero Toscani. After heading up the Fabrica design department, Jaime broke out with his own collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture.
A rock star in the design world with studios in Italy, Spain and the UK, Jaime's client list includes Camper, Baccarat, &Tradition and Established & Sons. He’s particularly known for tabletop objects—his irreverent approach kickstarted heritage porcelain house Lladró. Numerous awards from the likes of Icon Magazine, Wallpaper Magazine and Elle Decor (Spain) attest to his sway. "People will always look for objects that inspire them," he says, "that make them dream."
