Brigitte Bardot! The mere mention of her name still unleashes a million fantasies. A half-century after her debut, Bardot resurfaces through the imagination of Spanish design star Jaime Hayon as a curvaceous and alluring seating ensemble. Inspired by the feminine silhouette, Hayon wanted the sofa to "feel like a fruit, tender to the touch," while at the same time be extremely durable "like combining the lightness and strength of a ballerina."
Jaime Hayon is one of a revolutionary breed of designer and artist, who not only blurs the lines between art and design, but also questions what design actually is by pushing the boundaries of his materials. Born in 1974 in Madrid, Spain, he embodies a new type of creative renaissance man who, thanks to his inter-disciplinary approach and extraordinary talent, realizes his unique stylistic language across various areas and media. His work coherently brings together diametrical opposites such as opulence and practicality, sensuality and precision as well as finesse and restraint. Using a hybrid of industrial design disciplines, craft expertise and new technology, his whimsical creations come as a breath of fresh air after a decade of monotonous minimalism.
Bardot is offered as a lounge chair, loveseat or sofa. The collection is level 1 and greenguard certified.
