“Tables are where people exchange ideas, express emotions and connect with each other,” explains Spanish artist / designer Jaime Hayon. “As a multi-purpose object, why not design a multi-tiered table where different sizes, shapes, colors and materials converge together? Like one of Alexander Calder’s kinetic sculptures. Various shapes suspended in air but kept in place, supported by a metal armature. Creating a curious equilibrium that resembles a mobile - only static.”
At first glance, each Hayon Lounge table is a lesson in geometry. One version features a round shape coupled with a hexagon together with an elongated oval. Another version has a painter’s palette shape, while another version juxtaposes a rounded rectangle with an elongated oval and a circle. Each table is a composition of three distinctive shapes beautifully balanced at different heights which form a unified whole.
“The Hayon Lounge Table is my idea of interesting,” remarks &tradition’s Brand Director Martin Kornbek Hansen. “The polished marble brings a sense of nobility, while the oak adds earthiness. With metal as the stabilising factor connecting different shapes, colors and materials together. With each table offering three surfaces to choose from, it’s a modern answer to our multi-tasking lives.”
Varying in length from 67 cm to 83 cm to 116 cm, the Hayon Lounge Tables give a linear feeling to a 3D object. A sculpture you can enjoy looking at and living with.

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.
