Jaime Hayon presents a new collection of objects for Cassina inspired by the organic shapes of Le Corbusier’s architectures and primitive arts: four table centrepieces, a tray made up of two coffee bean shapes and two small side tables, all produced in solid ash-wood stained black with a low-gloss finish.

The "Réaction Poétique" Collection remains true to Cassina’s well-established heritage in working with wood, where skilled handcraftsmanship is combined with industrial innovation.

“I wanted to create useful objects for the modern home such as trays and side tables, but with sculptural elements interplaying forms, light and shadow. It was a very strict, almost religious challenge to use only one material and one finish, exercising my design philosophy. I feel this restriction actually became an opportunity to showcase the beauty of the wood, along with the expert mastery of Cassina’s carpentry workshop.” Jaime Hayon.
