Spanish designer Jaime Hayon immersed himself as a teenager in both skateboard culture and graffiti art, which lie at the core of the bold and whimsical forms he creates today. In 1997, after studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris, he joined Fabrica, a research center in Treviso, Italy, where he soon became the head of design. Hayon struck out on his own in 2003, first devising collections of ceramics and furniture, then delving into interior design. His work is featured in several museums and has received accolades from the likes of Time and Wallpaper magazines. Hayon designed his Ro Lounge Chair (2013) to offer relief from frenetic everyday life. â€œMy goal was to create a slim and elegant chair that encourages reflection and comfort,â€ he explains. Appropriately named â€“ ro is Danish for â€œtranquilityâ€ â€“ it beckons you to relax, offering chair-and-a-half proportions beautifully suited to changing positions, reading a newspaper or having your dog sit next to you as you unwind. Upholstered with a tufted back and flared outer shell, itâ€™s marked by subtle textural contrast and flowing organic lines. This is the authentic Ro Lounge Chair by Republic of Fritz Hansen. Made in Poland. Light Blue Jaime Hayon: Ro Lounge Chair.
