'The Guest' by Lladro coming to Chicago

The Guest has been called "the most ground-breaking Lladró character." It was conceived by Jaime Hayon for the Spanish artistic porcelain brand. It is traveling to Chicago for a special exhibition at the design showroom Haute Living. The opening will be celebrated on Wednesday, March 14, and will be attended by Rosa Lladró, president of Lladró. The exhibition will be on view there for three months and will also include additional pieces from The Fantasy by Jaime Hayon, his first collection for Lladró.

As with all Lladró  works, the Guests are handcrafted at its workshops in Valencia, following an entirely artisan process. The profound knowledge of porcelain, the specialized technique of the decorating team and the close collaboration with the artists resulted in the creation of pieces unexpectedly amusing and ground-breaking.

The Haute Living showroom is located across from the Merchandise Mart in the heart of Chicago's River North Design District. It carries furniture lines from emerging designers and progressive brands.
