The Réaction Poétique collection by Jaime Hayon

From the weird and whimsical mind of Jaime Hayon comes Réaction Poétique, a collection of objects for Cassina, inspired by the pictorial works and organic shapes of Le Corbusier’s architecture and esprit nouveau artwork. First produced in 2015 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Le Corbusier’s death and to mark the 50th anniversary of the LC Collection (Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand), the collection has proved to be so popular that in addition to the original black stained solid ashwood, it now comes in a wider range of four new finishes: green oil stained, purple red stained, mud stained ashwood, open pore and matt natural American walnut.

"I wanted to create useful objects for the modern home such as trays and side tables, but with sculptural elements interplaying forms, light and shadow. It was a very strict, almost religious challenge to use only one material and one finish, exercising my design philosophy. I feel this restriction actually became an opportunity to showcase the beauty of the wood, along with the expert mastery of Cassina’s carpentry workshop."
- Jaime Hayon

The Réaction Poétique Collection remains true to Cassina’s well-established heritage in working with wood, where skilled handcraftsmanship is combined with industrial innovation. These items are branded with the Cassina logo and accompanied by their own identity card to guarantee the authenticity of each single piece. They are also presented in a special packaging to highlight the inimitable quality of the project.
