There's something quintessentially Hayon-esque about Gardenias, the clever outdoor armchair + pergola created by Hayon for BD Barcelona Design.
Perhaps it's the high-back profile (that makes any inhabitant seem kingly or queenly), or perhaps it's the playful curves. It may even just be the intimation of a languorous afternoon in a Spanish garden.
Another thing Gardenias has going for it is its differentiation from patio or poolside furniture. As Hayon makes clear, this is garden furniture, "with organic forms that give it a sense of elegance, of delicacy and femininity."
Gardenias hearkens back to the garden as a place of baroque expression, departing from the more minimalistic landscape designs in vogue over the past few decades.
This is welcome news for those who celebrate a certain unkempt quality, a naturalness that's present in Gardenia's beautiful organic forms.
