The Danish design brand presents a new table from the Spanish artist-designer at Maison & Objet
More often than not, Jaime Hayon’s work is a woven tapestry of cultural influences, drawing influence from other creative domains such as poetry and architecture. Take, for example, his recent homage to Le Corbusier. Or his new Palette tables for Danish design brand &tradition. Presented at Maison & Objet, which opened its doors today, Palette is a collection of layered tables that connect various materials and shapes with a thin metal frame. “As a multi-purpose object, why not design a multi-tiered table where different sizes, shapes, colours and materials converge together? Like one of Alexander Calder’s kinetic sculptures,” said the designer. Indeed, the harmonious melange is reminiscent of the delicately balanced geometry of the American sculptor, adding only the varied textures of ash, brass, marble and steel. Palette is an elegant, energetic object that comes in three different varieties that can be used as a side table or centerpiece.
