Camper Together

A Model of Collaboration

Camper Together

Jaime Hayón

Madrid 1974

Jaime Hayón's unconventional mind dreams up extraordinary designs, from furniture and clocks to lamps and toys, whose aesthetic draws us closer to the world of magic, fairy tales and dreams. Camper embraces that world of talent by joining forces with the designer to come up with shoes in which fantasy contrasts with technical precision. Illusion and function, emotion and locomotion rolled into one.

Jaime Hayón is considered one of the 100 most important and influential artists of our time. After studying Industrial Design in Madrid, in 1997 he joined Fabrica—the iconic centre led by Oliviero Toscani—where he worked as director of the Design Department until opening his own studio in 2004. His studio currently has offices in Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom. Jaime Hayón's outrageous style has attracted clients like ArtQuitect, Metalarte, BD Barcelona Design, Bosa, Bisazza, Baccarat, Fritz Hansen, Fabergé, Moooi and Ceccotti. He exhibited at the David Gill Gallery in London and the Spanish Embassy in Tokyo during Designers Week 2013, and his surprising furniture, products, sculptures, interiors and installations can be found in venues around the world, such as the Chengdu Museum of Contemporary Art, Galleria Rossana Orlando in Milan, the Groninger Museum, Galerie Kreo in Paris, the Vitra Design Museum, the Aram Gallery and the Design Museum London. His latest creations are on display at the Spazio Hayón in Milan. Among Hayón's many distinctions are the Elle Deco International Award (2006), "Best Fixer-Upper" in the 2013 Wallpaper Design Awards, and guest of honour at the 2008 Biennale Interieur in Belgium. In 2012, he was named Curator of the Year for all eight Blickfang exhibitions.
