Jaime Hayon

Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayón was born in Madrid in 1974. As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so imminent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, working closely with the legendary image-maker and agitator Oliverio Toscani. In a short time he was promoted from student to head of their Design Department, where he oversaw projects ranging from shop, restaurant and exhibition conception and design to graphics. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, followed by interior design and installation. His singular vision was first fully exposed in 'Mediterranean Digital Baroque' at London's David Gill Gallery, an exciting mise en scène, largely executed in ceramic, followed by 'Mon Cirque', which traveled to Frankfurt, Barcelona, Paris and Kuala Lumpur. These collections put Jaime at the forefront a new wave of creators that blurred the lines between art, decoration and design and a renaissance in finely-crafted, intricate objects within the context of contemporary design culture.

Jaime further defined his vision in subsequent solo exhibitions and shows at London's Aram Gallery, and Milan's Salone de Mobile and his work has been displayed in Germany's Vitra Museum, London's Design Museum, Rotterdam's Vivid Gallery, the Gronginger Museum (also in Holland) and the Basel Art Fair and has attracted the attention of prestigious art collectors. Jaime's esteem and knowledge of artisan skills and his inherent creativity has allowed him to push the boundaries of many mediums and functions.

Jaime currently resides in London, with offices in Barcelona and Treviso (Italy). His work has appeared in the most prestigious art and design publications worldwide. He has won numerous awards including 'Best Installation' (Icon Magazine), 'Breakthrough Creator' (Wallpaper Magazine) and the 2006 Elle Deco International Award. In 2008, Jaime was guest of honor at Belgium's Interieur Biennial, the youngest person ever to receive the accolade.

Metalarte

Metalarte is a company that has defined its personality through the co-existence of the new and the traditional. Applying Yin and Yang to production has resulted in the possibility of maintaining a catalogue that balances the future and the past, a tradition that began in a workshop at Madrazo Street in Barcelona.

Metalarte, S.A., Barcelona, Spain is a manufacturer of traditional and avant-garde lighting whose origins date back to 1932. The world-renowned global company began within the warmth of a simple metalworking shop where its founder, Antonio Riera felt a unique passion for bright, appropriate lighting — something most unusual in a country that used 125 volts until the beginning of the 1960s.

Today Metalarte combines a pride about its pioneer past and its new state-of-the-art factory and manufacturing abilities. They have chosen to work with such established and esteemed professional designers as Eric Franch, the Devessa Brothers, Josep Aregall, Alberto Lievore, Manuel Molina, Richard Ferrer and Manuel Molina.To further the concept that the future is today, in 2003 Metalarte created its advanced laboratory, Metalab, that has commissioned such new designers as Jamie Hayón, Raymond Úbedy and Otto Candalda, Hector Seranno, Jordi Llopis, Emil Padros and Ana Mir.

Fragile and large wall plate
 

I purchased two of these fixtures for a powder room. The photos online don't show an additional large round metal wall plate that is attached to the actual porcelain fixture. It houses the bulky driver for the halogen lamp. In order to remove it I would have to pay someone to rewire this fixture to an A-lamp incandescent.
The other issue is the fragility of the fixture where the arm meets the shade. It's a very brittle connection. The first two fixture shipped were snapped and broken at this point. After getting two replacements my contractor broke one installing it. My opinion: not worth the hassle unless you have a very careful contractor and will never move it.
