The central theme of the new exhibition “Game On” at Galerie Kreo, a solo show of new work by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon, is sports, a theme born four years ago, at the end of the London Olympics. Hayon’s pieces are so whimsical, cartoonist, and humoristic, that it is hard to believe how sophisticated, precised, and perfect they are. But when it comes to Kreo, one of my favorite galleries for contemporary design, its visionary founders Clemence and Didier Krzentowski always make sure that production is taken to the most refined level. The objects in the show are made of traditional materials: marble, glass, ceramic, and wood, with which Hayon is exploring the world of forms, colors, and patterns in the various fields of sports. He attains his playful objects with a freedom of expression achieved through graphic lines, ergonomic structure, and aerodynamic forms. Expect to see a marble table in the texture of golf balls; mirrors in the form of ping-pong paddle; and tables in the form of basketball. At Kreo, Hayon animated the surfaces of the gallery with colorful tape that mimics the courts and fields. Another great achievement for Kreo.
