narrated through jaime hayon‘s eyes, a new series of rattan furniture for spanish company expormim takes center stage at salone del mobile 2014. the contemporary perception of the mediterranean is established with the ‘frames’ collection, which includes an armchair, a room divider and a side table. in order to manufacture the individual pieces, skilled craftsmen select rattan rods with special attention, curve them with heat and manually introduce them into the moulds.

since the classic use of rattan includes multiple diameters and abundant links, hayon creates a formula to compose specific pieces that simplifies and organizes the structures. each screen of wicker frames a classic braiding that evokes the past; the sinuous forms reflect characteristics from the designer and his illustrations.

hayon takes advantage of the continuity that these fibers are able to provide to follow the line of his drawings, while other materials would have required assembly. the curved and organic frameworks compose both the room divider and the chair, providing warmth and comfort thanks to the flexibility of the fibers.

    I know some people find rattan quite old-fashioned but seeing this would definitely change their mind! Very modern design, I think the black version could perfectly fit in an office!
