jaime hayon collaborates with wittmann in workshop collection

 

eclectic, exciting, mediterranean-baroque and yet timeless — are the words used to describe the ‘workshop’ collection made possible by the playful collaboration between spanish designer jaime hayon and austrian manufacturer wittmann. the set embodies vitality and confidence, just as their role models from the grand era of the viennese modernism.

rotation, turning, return — these are the meanings of the spanish word vuelta and the references used to create the ‘vuelta sofa’. the backrest rotates playfully around the corner, becomes the armrest, continues on to the sitter — or recliner — in order to enclose them, as in an embrace. the special shape is divided by expertly-crafted seam patterns, as a reminiscence of josef hoffmann produced by austrian manufacturer wittmann.

the ‘vuelta lounge chair’ radiates through its unusual proportions, a special charm when it’s placed alone, or the perfect counterpart for the ‘vuelta sofa’. the large lounge chair with its articulating seam patterns is reminiscent of viennese modernism whereas the compact small armchair, however, looks like a small, enchanting monolithic sculpture. as for the ‘vuelta highback chair’, it is a tribute — with a wink — to the history of austrian design. a gentle, soft flowing upholstery is framed by curved bentwood: a masterpiece of subtle design and relaxed seating.

the ‘DD tables’ bring refinement to any furnishing with their playful use of precious materials and the subtle break in the lines. two table tops, the bottom covered with leather, the top available in leather or marble, are connected with metal rods. they are offset, thereby generating again a call to the designs of josef hoffmann. the ‘grain cut side table’ is a sculpture — or a table — elaborately turned from a solid block of wood. it can be placed as a side table wherever is needed due to its flexible handles. it also serves as a shelf or as a sculpture.
