At the end of last month we were posting on Maison et Objet (here, here and here). Today I’m following up with some very collectable and very “lust-worthy” items by designer Jaime Hayon for Bosa and which were presented at Maison et Objet 2014.
Jaime Hayon Ceramic Designs
Jaime Hayon is a Spanish designer working with Italian company Bosa. Through a process of artisanal crafting techniques and laboratory-controlled glazes, he has created an exquisite range of hand-made ceramic pieces.
The range includes wall sculptures, side tables and miniature figurines, which have all been enriched with metallic glazes and finishes. Hayon has sought to bring to life all of the influences that “living cultures” have brought to bear on his creativity, but with his unique signature and Bosa’s style…
“Maskhayon” is a collection of wall hangings (up to half a metre in size) of a bear, monkey and elephant. They represent the “fusion of imaginary and animal-like characters in our immediate surroundings.” (designboom.com)
The T-tables are functional, simple and organic – designed to be easy to move around and intended to be used as a small side-table to be placed near a chair, sofa or lounger. They are practical, decorative and aptly described by designboom as being like “mushrooms in a forest.” (designboom.com)
And lastly, there are the exquisite “hope bird” sculptures. These “table-top sized” sculptures are intended to be optimistic symbols for what lies ahead. Standing proud and straight and looking out towards the future, they encourage us to remain positive and hopeful for the future before us. (designboom.com)
Do you agree with me? Are these not exceptionally desirable collectables for the month of love? Because I certainly wouldn’t mind getting any or all of them from my true love!
