"The Capitone rug is an attempt to translate a technique I love in furniture upholstery into a rug. It's an unusual yet simple concept that brings to the eye feelings of warmth and comfort. It comes from a home and a heart..." Jaime Hayon.
Capitone is created by hand knotting a very deep piled plain rug which is then masterfully carved by hand to form a three dimensional pattern.
Wallpaper* Magazine named Capitone the Best Rug at its 2012 Design Awards.
The works of Spanish designer Jaime Hayon have put him at the forefront a new wave of creators that blur the lines between art, decoration and design.
He was born in Madrid in 1974. As a teenager, he submerged himself in skateboard culture and graffiti art - the foundation of the bold-yet-whimsical imagery so prevalent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, and was shortly promoted to the head of their Design Department, where he oversaw projects ranging from shop, restaurant and exhibition conception and design to graphics. Eight years later, Jaime broke out on his own, first with collections of designer toys, ceramics and furniture, followed by interior design and installation. His work has been displayed in Germany’s Vitra Museum, London’s Design Museum, Rotterdam’s Vivid Gallery, the Gronginger Museum and the Basel Art Fair and has attracted the attention of prestigious art collectors. He has won numerous awards including ‘Best Installation’ (Icon Magazine), ‘Breakthrough Creator’ (Wallpaper Magazine) and the 2006 Elle Deco International Award. In 2008, Jaime was guest of honor at Belgium’s Interieur Biennial, the youngest person ever to receive the accolade.
Jaime Hayon’s rug collection captures his creative energy and singular vision; each one reflects his offbeat imagination and irreverence for conventional design.
