Explorer dining table by Jaime Hayon for BD Barcelona

Dezeen Showroom: a slender oval tabletop overhangs the chunky central pedestal of the Explorer dining table, which Jaime Hayon has designed for furniture brand BD Barcelona.

The Explorer is a continuation of Hayon’s wider Explorer collection, produced by BD Barcelona in 2019.

Instead of the traditional four legs, it relies on one central support to maximise space and comfort for sitters.

“Now more than ever we spend a lot of time in our homes eating, working and sharing moments,” said Hayon.

“The Explorer dining table was born from the idea of inclusion, eliminating the obstacles of the table by getting rid of the side legs, trying to create a spacious and comfortable space but being sculpturally strong at the same time.”

Furniture collection Brite Bodies is a "kaleidoscopic nod" to the work of influential creatives

Interior designers Kate Hayes and Krista Sharif have created Brite Bodies, a debut collection of colourful furniture informed by the work of creatives including Vivienne Westwood and Ettore Sottsass.

Brite Bodies comprises 11 designs and is the first furniture range from the eponymous Atlanta-based studio, which was co-founded by Hayes and Sharif.

Featuring coffee and martini tables as well as home accessories such as candlesticks and ornamental obelisks, the brightly-coloured collection takes cues from the work of some of Hayes and Sharif’s favourite creatives.

The Vivienne Pedestal is a handmade wooden side table painted in a pink and red geometric pattern that pays homage to the post-modern punk plaid and tartan prints of British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood.
