Piña was born of the desire to create a new seating concept, combining comfortable woven steel rods with solid wooden legs. With the weight of the seated body, the rods create a distinctive “capitonné effect” on the back of the cushion, adding to the very special character of this design. This very simple yet unique idea has given rise to an entire family of furniture: in addition to this armchair, the Piña collection includes a comfortable low chair with footrest, a handy table and an amusing rocking chair. Suitable also for outdoor use (the version with steel tube legs treated for outdoor use), the Piña collection is rendered even more versatile by the choice of different finishes, perfect for every style and setting.
Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayón was born in Madrid in 1974 and he is today one of the most acclaimed creators across the globe. Hayon’s esteem and knowledge of artisan skills and his inherent creativity have allowed him to push the boundaries of many media and functions, resulting in collections for a diverse range of clients. His interest in the conservation of craft skills has led his path to converge with those of high-end traditional companies who care about the evolution
of their work. Jaime is at the forefront of a new wave of creators who blur the lines between art, decoration and design, and of a renaissance in finely-crafted, intricate objects in the context of contemporary design culture.
