Wittmann has a tradition of craftsmanship dating back over a century. Precision, continuity and craft skills have shaped the philosophy of the company since its origins as a saddlery and leather workshop. Sustainability, in the form of long-lasting products, is a central concern. A passionate sense of obligation to a tradition of good design has led to a commitment to classic models that stand out for their uncluttered lines and timeless elegance.
The exclusive use of carefully selected quality materials, and unparalleled seating and reclining comfort are the hallmarks of a genuine Wittmann. When you buy a genuine Wittmann you are not acquiring furniture that is already on its way to the dump, but a piece that Wittmann can keep recovering to suit your tastes and changing fashions for many years ahead.
As a teen, Jaime Hayon submerged himself in the raw and bold culture of skateboarding and graffiti art, which years later became the foundation of the whimsical silhouettes and imagery, so prominent in his work today. After studying industrial design in Madrid and Paris, he joined Fabrica in 1997, the Benetton-funded design and communication academy, working hand in hand with the legend himself, Oliviero Toscani. Quickly, he was promoted to the head of their Design Department. Years later, Jaime ventured off on his own, first with his collection of toys, ceramics and furniture, later followed by interior design and installations.
