Where form meets function

While Eames fans may cringe just a bit, I’m quite taken by Jaime Hayon’s Lounger, which was shown at the Salone de Mobile 2010. There are very obvious comparisons to the Spanish designer’s creation and the mid-century icon, but the delicacy of the base grants its the chair a unique personality. Easily one of my favorite pieces to emerge from the Salone.

Jaime Hayon’s Lounger will be produced by BD Barcelona Design. Several more looks at the chair follow. (via Contemporist).
