Renowned Spanish designer Jaime Hayon has designed a collection of rattan furniture for Expormim that bends rattan rods into the signature sinuous forms characteristic of the designer.

The Frames collection includes an armchair, a room divider and a side table. “In order to manufacture them, skilled craftsmen [typically] select the rattan rods with special attention, curve them with heat, explore all its features to create, and manually introduce them into the moulds.” explains Expormim.

“But while the classic use of rattan includes multiple diameters and abundant links, Hayon creates a formula to compose the pieces of Frames that simplifies and organizes the structures. Each screen of wicker frames a classic braiding that evokes the past, but the whole takes the sinuous forms characteristic of the designer and his illustrations. Jaime Hayon takes advantage of the continuity that these fibres are able to provide to follow the line of his drawings, while other materials would have required assembly.”
