Chair by Jaime Hayón for &tradition

The renowned Spanish designer and artist Jaime Hayón has collaborated with the Danish furniture brand &tradition on a new chair design whose prototype was presented at Spazio Hayón in Milan’s Ventura Lambrate. Inspired by ‘the harmony of curves’, the chair’s curvilinear, injection-moulded shell is available in variety of colours and materials: ‘from a basic naked shell to quality Kvadrat wool upholstery and a luxurious leather alternative.’

More about the design:

 

‘Sinuous movements in nature, the push and pull of rounded forms and the interplay of light and shadows, Curves are both seductive and comforting, the natural embellishment and enhancement to linear forms. The key to the design was the creation of a flexible, comfortable shape that would adjust to various body types with its modern and inviting form. A combination of rich materials and various finishes allow for a wide range of options: from a basic naked shell to quality Kvadrat wool upholstery or a luxurious leather alternative. Available in various finishes and ergonomically designed with a high backrest, the chair is both functional and comfortable.’
