The perfect gift for a 30-year milestone, the Hayon x Nani is a dreamy, wild collection with a great sense of humour.
Created with the hand tufting technique, a manually operated pistol injects pieces of wool, intuitive and fluid lines are achieved, as well as an organic composition. The definitive and faithful reproduction of the original sketch by the designer.
A first glance reveals a chaotic tangle of colors and shapes that invade the rug. However, after looking carefully, the imagination of Jaime Hayón springs to life: turtles, lips, hands, stools, fish, half men – half birds.

Nanimarquina Hayon X Nani Rug Designed by:
- Jaime Hayon
Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon was born in Madrid in 1974. As a teenager he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art, the foundation of the detailed, bold-yet-whimsical imagery so prominent in his work today. He studied industrial design in Madrid and Paris then opened his own studio a few years later.
He began with a collection of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, later followed by interior design and installations. Jaime Hayon created the Favn sofa and the Ro Lounge chair for Fritz Hansen. They are designed with great attention to detail and have become main stays of the Fritz Hansen collection.
In 2007 Hayon has collaborated with Moooi to produce the Element Series of objects and furniture.
