While Jaime Hayon’s Explorer side tables for BD Barcelona Design are sure to add a playful touch of colour to any interior, be warned: The collection might also invoke a serious hankering for sweets. The Spanish designer picked up a little inspiration from the candy store for this series, balancing rounded tabletops on capsule-shaped legs that mimic jelly beans. He also suggests the idea of a space vessel about to launch as another influence, which explains the moniker.
Exhibiting Hayon’s trademark blend of elegance and whimsy, Explorer – one of three new collaborations with the Barcelona furniture brand – combines matte and glossy finishes and a triptych of components: painted glass top, cylindrical lacquered-fibreglass base and four solid turned-wood legs. Various multicolour iterations are available, in warm neutrals or vibrant reds, blues and greens, as well as monochrome versions in dark or light grey. The line offers three sizes, the largest being 42 centimetres tall by 100 centimetres wide.
With a playful sense of sweetness, BD Barcelona’s new table is inspired by the candy store.
