Earlier this year, Fritz Hansen has launched the Analog table designed by acclaimed Spanish designer Jaime Hayon, marking it the third collaboration between the two design giants. The Analog table features a unique shape: not a circle, oval or square. The new unique shapes takes the best features from the three classic shapes and brings them together in a new, wholesome form.
Jaime Hayon is unique because, on the one hand, he is extremely creative and inventive, yet, on the other, he is very structured and strategic in his thinking – a mix you do not see so often. His unique profile is crossed with a highly developed ability to understand a brand’s values and heritage yet, at the same time, he is never afraid to challenge and develop these values. Finally, he is also a person incredibly at ease, which of course is important when working as a close team.

The Analog Table comes in three different sizes, and five variants: as a table for 4, 6 or 8 persons and with table tops in white laminate, oak and walnut veneer. The Drop chair, that beautifully compliments the table, is available in six plastic colours: black, white, storm-blue, stone-grey, fire-red and sand-yellow. The plastic versions are available with either chrome or powder-coated legs in matching colours. The Drop is also available with textile or leather upholstery.
I have been called a kind of visionary; someone whose work is having an impact on the evolution of design. This is fine but I live in a small town with my family, we do simple things together. I don’t like to be too trendy or too fancy. This keeps my feet on the ground, which is good. It is good not to think too much about what you do. I have no strategy – my world is my aesthetic and it’s done with heart. I love what I do and I hope to die with a pencil in my hand.
