Expormim is a Spanish company founded in 1960 that is seeking lately to recover rattan as a fine material and to recognise this artisan tradition of the Mediterranean countries counting on important designers and architects. With an extensive know-how and history in wicker products, Expormim opens now a new chapter through the vision of Jaime Hayon.

The history of this third generation family firm created a challenge for Jaime to tell an old story in a new and interesting way. All of Expormim’s products have a strong identity and exude a flavour of the Mediterranean area they hail from, a characteristic they share with Hayon. For the FRAMES collection which includes an armchair, a screen and a side table, he has combined his respect and love for the Expormim traditions with his unique design sensibility to create clever pieces that take a new approach to the way in which the material is used. Rattan is almost unique as a furniture material in that is requires no additional components to function, taking this material, Hayon created a series of frames that come together offering comfort and flexibility.

FRAMES is a happy new chapter to an old story, the old tale of craft and tradition within a new framework of clever design using a joyous new approach to the material. The nested narrative of the design brings this traditional outdoor furniture inside, adding a layer of glamour to the rustic charm of the material. What was once only a seasonal story can now be told all year round, with this simple yet sophisticated, aesthetic FRAMES has all the properties of a contemporary classic.

CHAIR: rattan or steel legs. Different choices of wicker mesh: classic or dense 3x3mm. Optional pillow.
