Jaime Hayon

Fantasy Collection by Lladro

November 26, 2008 / February 8, 2009

opening Saturday December 13, 4pm

VIVID Gallery is proud to present renowned Spanish designer Jaime Hayon’s first collection for porcelain company par excellence Lladro. Following his appointment as Artistic Director of the company last year Hayon has produced a truly innovative contemporary range of vases, candle holders and figurines in his own distinctive visual language.

His flamboyant style fuses a bold colour palette to witty and surrealist forms, a style he calls ‘Mediterranean Digital Baroque’. Ever the entertainer, Hayon plays with circus imagery, kitsch family groupings, streamlined fluid shapes, and even references himself with new versions of his Chicken Rocker and figures wearing his designs for Camper shoes.

The fusing of Hayon’s magic of the unexpected with Lladro’s unsurpassable technical expertise have created a modern updated range of figurines for the twenty first century and beyond.

The Fantasy Collection
The creations in The Fantasy collection which Jaime Hayon has designed for Lladró, mirror the perfect fusion between the artistic quality of the Spanish porcelain brand and the playful, fantasy quality the designer brings to his works. The balance between expression and function, the studied combination of Lladró’s usual themes and the magic of the unexpected that Hayon is known for, make these pieces truly original objects that, over and above their decorative potential, awaken a sense of fantasy in the beholder.

The Hayon exhibition will also display new lamps by Jaime Hayon for Metalarte and Hayon furniture for BD Barcelona
