JAIME HAYON’S COLLECTION
Jaime Hayon, one of the world’s leading designers, has created his own collection of wallpapers for Engblad & Co. In his designs he is strongly influenced by his surroundings, often working from the idea that “good design needs to provoke emotions.”
Wherever Jaime Hayon is, he develops his designs from the places and spaces he visits. He is passionate about taking a familiar graphic pattern and creating new opportunities. Which is, incidentally, what he did when designing his unique wallpaper collection for Engblad & Co.
“I tried to make the graphic patterns as simple as possible and focused on how we use wallpaper – the size, the colours, the combinations, and how we place them,” Hayon says.
In his designs he has gone back to the fundamentals: basic components of dots, lines and circles. Using this as a basis for angles, curves, volumes and lines, he has managed to create patterns that marry character with discretion. These wallpapers will bring an identity and personality to the spaces they fill, and they can also be combined with existing furnishings for a harmonious yet striking result.
“I am fascinated by wallpaper and the difference it can make to a room. For example, how texture and reflections function in different light conditions, and what effects they can produce.”
The wallpapers in the Jaime Hayon collection aren’t simply new and exciting patterns – as consumers, we are also being offered a unique opportunity to get involved in creating the designs that will adorn our walls at home.
