jaime hayon: the guest for lladró atelier

‘the guest’ by jaime hayon

spanish designer jaime hayon has created ‘the guest’, a collection of decorated porcelain characters for lladró atelier. on display at maison et objet 2012, the project was created by hayon with the intention to invite the sensibility of numerous artists and designers external to the porcelain manufacturer to participate in personalizing their own ‘guest’ figurine at lladró atelier’s studio in valencia, spain.

the lladró atelier booth designboom visited at the design show featured the designs of jaime hayon, santa monica, california-based artist tim biskup, and tokyo-based design team devil robots. the first pieces of the collection include three designs in two sizes. the larger sized ‘guests’ have been created in a limited edition of 250 units, with figurine having been crafted by hand.
