PRESS RELEASE

FUORI SALONE 2008

Andrée Putman for Bisazza
Jaime Hayon for Bisazza

Milan, 16-21 April 2008
Superstudio Più
Via Tortona 27
Press preview:
Tuesday 15 April 2007, from 3pm to 7pm

During the Salone del Mobile 2008, Bisazza presents two striking installations by Andrée Putman and Jaime Hayon at Superstudio Più.

The installations, are not only an expression of two totally opposite styles but also of two different generational approaches, the French design icon and the young Spaniard interpret mosaic using their own original, highly distinctive language.

In this installation mosaic finds the maximum expression of its great artistic value and versatility in an entirely surprising way.

“JET SET”, DESIGN BY JAIME HAYON

The atmosphere in the second space dedicated to the project by Jaime Hayon is totally different. The Spanish designer continues his collaboration with Bisazza, still surprising us with his typically flamboyant, Mediterranean creative ability, which reveals his “playful” approach and his fun way of interpreting mosaic.

A setting reminiscent of a hangar, totally atypical and chic, hosts a sophisticated “fantasy” aeroplane with a decidedly surreal shape, decorated with white gold mosaic tiles, leather inserts and featuring a neat lounge with padded white sofas.

Completing the luxury jet look is a black and white striped floor in Bisazza glass chip mosaic tiles, with interesting reflections between light and shadow creating a movie-set atmosphere.

Through playful language, irony coupled with the creative, fantastic flair of Jaime Hayon allows visitors to escape from reality, “diverting them” towards a surreal, poetical world.

“I like the idea of being able to create a fun, more sophisticated version of an object as serious and functional as an aeroplane.

“Set in a very glamorous hangar, this aeroplane is a light-hearted work with an unusual and enchanting look, complete with a glass cabin, leather wings and coloured missiles and symbols alluding to love.

“Mosaic tiles in white gold and fibreglass make this aircraft luxurious and surreal. The striped floor in Bisazza black and white glass tiles conveys a feeling of speed and movement.

“The installation’s spectacular atmosphere, created by the use of reflectors, is reminiscent of a scene from an old Hollywood movie. At the heart of the aircraft is a circular lounge. I can imagine this thing flying, with a couple of lovers on board sipping champagne, the atmosphere charged with positive energy and emotions during their flight.

“Jet Set is a sitting room cum aeroplane: an objet d’art in an imaginary installation which displays the potential of Bisazza mosaic.”

    Love Bisazza, they have some great advertising and some beautiful product, but this does nothing for me. Empty.
    @kiso – Hon isnt being literal, they know it isnt an actual aircraft design and that they dont like the piece.

  • FBot

    I do like some of Hayon’s work but this is going way over the top.

    The simple jar tops posted earlier today is such a better project then this whole jet BS.

  • Billy

    Tab there are definate similarities tho I suppose that Hayon is taking the piss unlike Rashid

  • Austin

    Lighten up, have you ever seen Jaime Hayon not smiling….he is laughing at all of you with this design.

  • desky

    Billy….

    I think Karim Rashid is taking the piss out of all of us, his clients included.

    In regards to Hayons work, makes me think of a kids drawing in 3D.
