Palette JH9 Desk by Jaime Hayon for &Tradition
Updated: Jan 6
“In a world where everyone is rushing around mega multi-tasking, to sit at an ordinary desk feels so static,” says designer Jaime Hayon. “I felt compelled to design a desk with a feeling of motion, inspired by the kinetic sculptures of Alexander Calder. Balancing various shapes and materials at various heights supported by a metal frame. In theory it’s like a mobile but in reality it’s a desk.” Each Palette Desk partners two shapes together: an elongated bean shape with a simple round shape. The two merge a marvellous mix of regal materials available in three different combinations. For the table tops, choose from polished Nero Marquina marble or honed Bianco Carrara marble, satin polished brass or stained ash veneer in black, red or grey-green. The base is made from welded and powder coated steel tubes, adding a contemporary touch to this collage of contrasts.
