Jaime Hayon for Bosa ceramics

Legendary Jaime Hayon

I’m in love! Jaime Hayon’s creations for Bosa ceramics are fun, quirky, luxurious and the ultimate accessories. Jaime has been crafting exciting pieces for the ceramics studio for nearly 10 years and I am recently hooked on the entire range. With todays trend still being towards fun and whimsical pieces I believe owning any Jaime Hayon item would bring a smile to the most mundane of days or excitement to a beige interior.

1. Hopebird: a tabletop-sized sculpture that symbolizes the importance of “an optimistic approach to what lies ahead”. Designed for Italian ceramics manufacturer Bosa, the Hope Bird stands tall and proud in a watchful position, working to convey a message about “standing tall” and being positive. As the Hope Bird looks toward the horizon, the 72cm-high sculpture invites viewers to reflect on why it is important to have a “glass half full” attitude.

2. T-Table: New ceramic side tables in two distinctive shapes, using contrasting metallic laquer finishes. The mushroom shaped ‘T-Table’ comes in gold, copper or white.

3. Pellicano: Soft and feminine shapes inspired on the pelican’s elegance create this container object. The contours of this exotic bird subtly become an easy to grip ceramic receptacle that can be used to serve water, juice, coffee or milk. Humor, imagination and the best ceramic craft tradition come together to bring to life this optimistic companion.

Downtown Design Dubai

Welcome to the brave new world of Dubai Interiors!

Held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, the second edition of Downtown Design which concluded last week was a success.

I wrote an article for Vision magazine about the show and its exhibitors, see below for excerpt from the magazine or here for the online edition.

Set in the heart of downtown Dubai, the fair boasted a 3-day exhibit showcasing a snippet of the latest and greatest in design, complimented by a series of events and workshops aiming to communicate the importance of original design. While the show was small, it was a success in other ways, having brought the design community together with innovative pieces and plenty to talk about.The quality of the craftsmanship, textures and materials were incredibly inspiring.

See you next year at Downtown Dubai.
