Jayme Hayon creates mediterranean frames rattan collection for Expormim
Narrated through Jaime Hayon's eyes, a new series of rattan furniture for Spanish Company EXPORMIM takes center stage at Salone del Mobile, the
contemporary perception of the mediterranean is established with the "frames" collection, which includes an armchair, a room divider and a side table.
In order to manufacture the individual pieces, skilled craftsmen select rattan rods with special attention, curve them with heat and manually introduce
them into the moulds.
In 1918, a Granada painter brought together serveral craft workshops in the Granada district
of Albaycin and founded ALPUJARRENA. Since then, designs by Eileen Gray, Juan Gris, Dali,
Moneo, Alvaro Siza, Oscar Tusquets, Xavier Mariscal, Federico Garcia Lorca, Perez Villarta,
Gordillo, Alcain, Jose Guerrero, Mendini, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mondrian, Kandinsky, Bauhaus
and many others have inspired the creation of rugs and tapestries from ou looms to decorate
well-known luxury hotels, flagship buildings belonging to business and public bodies, and private homes.
Our factory is in La Zubia, a village 3 km from Granada, where we make quality rugs in the traditional way with natural materials, respecting universal workers rights and European Environmental regulations.
