Born in Madrid, Jaime Hayon studied industrial design in Spain and France before starting his Valencia-based studio in 2003. A prolific artist and designer, Hayon has created lighting, furniture, textiles, ceramics, watches, shoes and more. He has also designed interiors for the Lladro ceramics boutique in New York, the Camper apparel store in Tokyo, and the Info Center at the Groninger Museum in the Netherlands. In a nod to the 1958 Arne Jacobsen-designed Room 606 at the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen (now the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Copenhagen, with Jacobsen’s room intact), Hayon designed his own room at the hotel, Room 506, contributing furniture, wall art, bedding, and lighting. Hayon was included on Time magazine’s The Style & Design 100 list of “virtuosos” in 2007, and named the Elle Decoration Designer of the Year for 2016.
