Born in Madrid, Jaime Hayón has one of the most glittering careers in recent contemporary design. Although trained in Madrid, he forged his reputation at Fabrica in 1997, at the young age of 24. Hayón worked for Oliviero Toscani, who quickly placed him in charge of the design department. In 2004, he decided to branch out on his own, settling in Barcelona and working on a number of projects while also exhibiting his more personal work in art galleries. The exhibition “Mediterranean Digital Baroque”, at London’s David Gill Gallery and the bathroom collection he designed for ArtQuitect marked the start of his meteoric international rise.
