Kinetic inspiration: Jaime Hayon’s Palette tables for &Tradition

Spanish designer Jaime Hayon created a new multi-tiered table design for Danish brand &Tradition. Inspired by Alexander Calder’s kinetic sculptures, Hayon’s Palette tables are composed of several different tops that form a collage of sizes and shapes. Tabletop shapes include a painter’s palette shape, circle, rounded rectangle, elongated oval and a hexagon. Set at varying heights so that the surfaces overlap, the tabletops are on black steel frames. Surface materials include marble (polished Nero Marquina, Rosso Levanto and honed Bianco Carrara) and stained ash veneer in dark grey, blue or pale pink.

&Tadition (formerly Unique Copenhagen) is a Danish design brand and manufacturer of lighting and furniture.
