About the ProductThe Frames collection which includes a dining chair, armchair, footstool, coffee table and screen has combined Jaime Hayon's respect and love for Expormim's 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.
The BrandMore about this Brand
La Exportadora del Mimbre was founded by lawyer Miguel Laso Tortosa in 1960 to export wicker products. Tortosa had identified a gap in the European market for products made from natural materials. He brought in the wicker from the nearby region of Cuenca and it was handcrafted into baskets, folding screens, cradles and toys. A few years later, armchairs and loungechairs were added to the company’s range.
