Stone Age Folk, by designer Jaime Hayon, builds on the fantastical world presented at Interior Design Show Toronto and takes the installation to an architectural scale for Milan’s Fuorisalone 2017. To be exhibited within the historical backdrop of the Palazzo Serbelloni, the installation draws on inspiration from flora, fauna and folklore from different cultures. Tribal masks and Hayon’s signature clown faces are featured on the large-scale wall panels of the pavilion and presented alongside playful carousels made of Caesarstone, furniture pieces and light fixtures. Further demonstrating the versatility of Caesarstone’s material, through the lively, visionary eyes of the designer, dining tables, small coffee tables and cabinets become bird-like characters and animated faces. Together, all the pieces contribute to the kaleidoscopic feel of the installation and enable the visitor to playfully interact with the material in a fresh, unexpected way.
Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974. His artistic vision was first fully exposed in the ‘Mediterranean Digital Baroque’ and ‘Mon Cirque’ installations. These collections put Jaime at the forefront of a new wave that blurred the lines between art, decoration and design. Jaime further defined his vision in subsequent solo exhibitions and shows at major galleries, and design and art fairs all over the globe. He has won numerous awards, and has been recognized by Wallpaper* Magazine as one of the most influential creators of the last decade, and lauded as a "visionary" and one of the most creative icons by Times magazine.
