Animal-inspired design was well represented at this year’s Stockholm Design Fair. The designer is known for an animal imagery, particularly monkeys, which he has featured in his furniture. Everyone was invited to his DNA Gallery designed especially for Stockholm Design Fair. The structure whose installation is characterized by a mixture of fantasy and extravagancy. The DNA Hayón’s Gallery conduces a visitor to his past and present work. Every kind of art could be found in his Gallery, from sculptures to daily products dividing space into four different zones:
- The Game of Fantasy
- Folk Culture
- Flora and Fauna
- Craft Heritage
“The pavilion is an experimental way of looking at architecture,” he continued. “It’s a mixture of folklore together with some influences that I have from my travels – little elements and glimpse of things put together in an experimental box.”
“When you enter the space, you get a momentary sense of what’s in my brain,” Hayón told Dezeen. “I thought you had to be in a shell to feel a little bit of my vibe.”
