As a curious person, Jaim observes his everyday surroundings and that’s when his design process begins to spread its wings. In the Boolean Plates, he plays with boundaries in order to create new forms and compositions. In El Castillo, a fantasy piece of furniture, he plays with the boundaries of reality and space. In Alè, a foliage wooden lamp, he ties and unties each leaf as to create his own custom shaped Alè. In Alef, a bent vase, he plays with balance and relations. In Caramelos, he plays with the structure of candy. Whether it’s a piece of furniture, a light fixture or just an ornament, it doesn’t hurt to have an exotic Hebrew or Spanish title to add to the mystery. And to think that most of his ideas came to mind, while in the shower.
