Explorer dining table by Jaime Hayon for BD Barcelona

Dezeen Showroom: a slender oval tabletop overhangs the chunky central pedestal of the Explorer dining table, which Jaime Hayon has designed for furniture brand BD Barcelona.

The Explorer is a continuation of Hayon's wider Explorer collection, produced by BD Barcelona in 2019.

Instead of the traditional four legs, it relies on one central support to maximise space and comfort for sitters.

"Now more than ever we spend a lot of time in our homes eating, working and sharing moments," said Hayon.

"The Explorer dining table was born from the idea of inclusion, eliminating the obstacles of the table by getting rid of the side legs, trying to create a spacious and comfortable space but being sculpturally strong at the same time."

According to Hayon, the design's sculptural yet playful aesthetic takes cues from jelly bean sweets.

"This childlike inspiration has at the same time a very elegant beauty, which generally is characterised in my designs," he said.

The Explorer dining table is available with an oval top and a length of either 180 or 220 centimetres. It also comes in a circular version with a diameter of 130 centimetres.

The range is available in three colourways, with different shades used across the tabletop, body and base.
