Jaime Hayon Blue Paper Vase by Octaevo is the result of a collaboration between Octaevo and internationally renowned and award-winning Spanish designer Jaime Hayon who adorned the paper vase with his characteristic line illustrations. The paper vases are a limited edition and come in Octaevo's signature white and blue shades with bold strokes in gold. Hayon's face drawings match perfectly Octaevo's obsession with Greek and Roman gods. The result is a superb symbiosis of both traditions.
