This exhibit, which will occupy a privileged place in Feria Valencia’s Pavilion 1 next to the vanguard firms’ production exhibit, “Flash Hábitat Valencia”, will also reflect Hayón’s work in other domains. For instance, it will include samples of his designs for Camper, for which he has designed not only several concept shops, but also a footwear collection.

The Hayón exhibit will occupy the central “Flash Hábitat Valencia” area, and the pieces will be arranged in a circular fashion as if to mark the hours on a simulated large clock, a clock which will reflect Hayón’s brilliant career. With this initiative, this event intends to stage and claim, once and for all, the prestige of Spanish design, and to also show its firm decision and commitment with “made in Spain”. According to José Blasco, Chair of the trade fair: “Jaime Hayón’s participation is certainly a luxury for Feria Hábitat Valencia and the perfect complement for the wide-ranging and attractive design offer here since we have managed to build a top-level shop window, in which the National Design Award-winning firms will also jointly participate”.
