Palette Tables by Jaime Hayon
Updated: Jan 16, 2020
“Tables are where people exchange ideas, express emotions and connect with each other,” explains Jaime Hayon. “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. 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. 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.
