Bisazza Bagno

Word on the street is world-renowned Italian house of mosaics, Bisazza, has just launched a new division – Bisazza Bagno. Teaming up with Jaime Hayon – everyone’s favorite Spanish designer du jour – for their first collection, the new division will be dedicated to providing a complete offering of bathroom products.

Bisazza Bango says the decision to work with Jaime Hayon on the design of the first Bisazza Bagno collection was based on their common design aesthetic and stylistic values.

Hayon says of the idea behind the premiere bathroom collection: “The collection recalls the glamour of the 1930s with a Scandinavian touch and feminine shapes. Elegance is the main trait of this innovative collection. The bathroom is the most important room in the home and it should not be hidden. With this collection, it becomes an area you want to show, a place you can keep open. The bathroom becomes a stylish room, full of charm and style, with a strong identity.”

According to Bisazza Bagno, we can expect to see more collaborations with some equally talented and high-profile designers in the near future. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what they come up with!

I love the lightness and the sensuality of the designs…a nice change from the usual bathroom offerings. The white and chrome combos are pretty classic and easy to use, however its the black and copper that I’m coveting. What do you guys think?

Jaime Hayon per sé

One of the most exciting events for me during my recent trip to London was being able to attend the launch party of the new range of furniture from by Jaime Hayon.

I can safely say that each of the pieces in this collection is set to be a future design classic. The ‘Arper’ lounge chair (seen below in the showroom window) is the signature piece of the collection and its easy to see why. The Arper was inspired by the form of the traditional wing-back club chair and interpreted in a way that has Hayon’s signature all over it.

My favorite piece might be the tambor table (second last image) – the super sexy shape and the combination of carrara marble and lacquered metal is so simple yet so chic. Its hard to choose though, each and every one of the designs are charming, and show a delightful selection of materials not normally seen in such a contemporary range – velvet and leather upholstery and lacquered metals in a range of subtle metallic colours teamed with classic marbles. Oh, and the colours, did I mention the colours? Divine.


If you’re in London and you missed the launch, the collection will be in show in the pop-up showroom on Brompton Road until October 5th, so go check it out!

Fabulous Fabergé!

Totally loving these images I found of the new Fabergé store in Geneva, designed by Spanish superstar Jaime Hayón. Not quite what I would have guessed from a company that is well over 100 years old now, its quite contemporary. I love the colours and the mix of furniture though. In fact, I spy a few favorites, including sofas by and chairs by Ceccotti.

What do you think? Does it inspire you to buy a jewel encrusted egg?

J’aime Hong Kong!

Hong Kong’s cognoscenti was out in force last night at the Lane Crawford home store to catch a glimpse of the multi-talented Spanish designer Jaime Hayon, where he made a guest appearance. It seemed like the crowd just couldn’t get enough of the charming young Spaniard, and he seemed to be equally enjoying working the crowd.

A man whose style is difficult to define – although if pressed to do so, “Neo-Baroque” might partly fit the bill – Hayon seems to channel the past through his own unique filter system, to create new to the world products that are somewhat familiar to us in an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ kind of way.

Hayan’s brand of futurism is appealing on many levels, and is as elegant as it is whimsical. His unique stamp has graced products as varied as shoes, lighting, toys, furniture, textiles and interiors. It’s his bathware range entitled “Artquitect” that I’m most enamoured with though. High gloss, curvaceous legs and generous proportions are definitely a winning combination in a bath, as I’m sure the photos below will attest.

A few more of my favorite designs from Studio Hayon.

And yes, that first image is from my signed copy of his book…but you weren’t surprised were you? I already admitted I was a design groupie!
