Seen at Spazio Rosanna Orlandi – Baccarat – Jaime Hayon. "The Baccarat Room" at the Spazio Rossana Orlandi overlooking the garden, looked fabulous. The Crystal Candy Set designed by Jaime Hayon couldn’t have found a better stage setting. With these pieces, Jaime Hayon wanted to replicate the richness of fresh tropical fruit using crystal in a variety of textures and thicknesses. Fruity inspirations are mixed with gemlike features: pineapples, pomegranates, golf balls and water drops are some of the ideas explored.

The Artist Designer – Jaime Hayon. In Jaime, you can almost hear the word “gem.” And that’s a good way to characterize Spanish artist and designer Jaime Hayon. Half-conquistador, half-imp, this adventurer of design embraces life with an extraordinary creative zest, an immediate empathy for his nearest and dearest, and an infectious vitality.
