The Aleta Chair by Jaime Hayon for Spanish brand Viccarbe has a welcoming and comforting design, thought for collaborative workspaces, public spaces, restaurants, and private use. Inspired by the physiognomy and movement of sharks, Jaime Hayon has created the Aleta collection for Viccarbe in 2017. "ALETA" in Spanish means “fin”. The subtle details in the structure of the legs and the continuous movement towards its backrest reflects the personality and character of Jaime Hayon. An elegant chair which supports the user, adding character to any room.

Aleta is available in multiple upholstery finishes, with or without armrests, as a chair, counter stool, bar stool, or lounge chair. The base can be in metal, fixed or various swivel shapes, with or without casters, or a wood base expanding its possibilities.

Hayon set up his own studio practice in the year 2000 and dedicated himself fully to his personal projects from 2003 onward, today he is one of the most acclaimed creators worldwide.
