The information that follows is from Sé:


Sé collection by Jaime Hayon launching at The London Design Festival, September 2010

‘Solid bronze side tables with fantastic curves. Bold colours applied to confident shapes. A sofa and armchair delicately proportioned but with a wit and presence that sets them apart from any other chair. The upholstery is refined, the styling almost classic but with a look of something very new, very now.’

The Sé / Jaime Hayon collaboration began with an idea from Director Pavlo Schtakleff – he himself constantly striving to achieve the ‘new’ by carefully sourcing only leading experts to create unique styles and finishes, enabling design extraordinaire Jaime Hayon to create a full range of pieces would, in Schtakleff’s mind undoubtedly result in this perfect coupling of design originality with Sé’s now firmly established basis of superior craftsmanship and technological expertise.

The materials chosen for this collection were a selection of the finest woods, metals, marbles and fabrics – the edit of these, resulting in a richness clearly demonstrated within each piece. Shapes within the collection are dynamic and light.

They are objects of comfortable luxury, each with a strong identity yet classic in their ability to work within a variety of environments.

For Jaime Hayon, the freedom to create an extensive collection with the support of a skilled production network was also an attractive proposition. "I met Sé in London whilst selecting furniture elements for an interior design project.

I was impressed by the quality and comfort of Sé’s pieces, as well as the spirit of the company. This opportunity brought about a discussion on the lack of choice for certain elements in interior design. Dialogue led to reality and a year later, the Sé Collection by Hayon is ready... " Jaime Hayon

    The collection looks very nice and I wonder whether the hourglass shaped pieces were inspired by Brancusi's Silence Table.
