For his first collaboration with Galerie kreo, following the “Carnival Series” collection of mirrors in 2014, Jaime Hayon has created a collection inspired by sports—a theme in tune with Galerie kreo’s DNA as Clémence and Didier Krzentowski both come from this industry, having participated in the production of the Olympic Games of Albertville in 1992.

In a similar manner when Hayon stages fauna, flora, Circus or games, the inspiration of sports allow the Spanish artist and designer to bring to life cartoon-like pieces playing with metamorphosis, scales, and disguises. These transformations bring us back to the flawless imagination of Jacques-Émile Ruhlmann (1879–1933), one of the most honorable interior decorator of the 20th century; who came up in 1929 with the Chaise-longue aux skis also known as « Maharadjah », where the feet of the chair morph into bronze skis. The visual theme of sports also allows Hayon to play with forms, colors, and patterns—graphic lines of sports fields, aerodynamic curves, ergonomic structure. For example the Golf Side Table mimics the pattern and texture of a golf ball in precious Carrara marble.

As often the case with Jaime Hayon, each piece proposes a scenario of use, precisely conceived, and stems from a singular vision: “I wish to freeze a moment of my imagination,” he wrote in 2013. If the work is often joyful and ornamental, it originates from rigorous conception and production. It is one of the gifts of the talented designers to never make the audience feel the pain of the workload but just the joy of the process, the pleasure of creation.
