Gardenias offers a softer, more curvaceous appearance-svelte, subtle and feminine- its designer’s characteristic style. With this collection Jaime Hayon has created a set of benches and chairs, as well as vases and planters which do not display the typically rigid, square-shaped and bulky forms associated with metal garden furnishings. Developed for BD Barcelona, the pieces, though made from a material which seems unyielding, flow with organic and natural, delicate shapes. In conceiving ‘Gardenias’, the Spanish designer wanted to revive classical elements with something contemporary-visually light, but solid and resistant.
