Since its origins in the 1970’s, BD has always been an atypical company. Its founders and still current owners, who come from an architectural background rather than the business field, have oriented BD’s production from the very start by cultivating beauty, in some cases above their function.
Accompanied with artisanal processes instead of mass production, the new products always have more proximity to art than industrial design.
Characterized by superior quality, short-series productions (and on occasion limited editions), and unique pieces due to crafted manufacturing. In the 70’s, BD pleasantly surprised by editing Gaudí’s furniture for his famous buildings and in the early 90’s, BD again astounded by introducing an exclusive first collection of furniture and lamps designed by Dalí.
Recently the collections and designers with an accentuated artistic profile like Jaime Hayon and Doshi Levien, continue to point the way where design and art meet together.
At the Downtown Design 2020 Digital Fair, BD Barcelona presented their Showtime Collection.
Jamie Hayon designed this version together with the Low Lounger and Lounger to target the contract market, where smaller pieces without the headrest would be needed. It was a best seller since the release of the product some years ago.
Recently it has been specified by some of the leading design studios in the world to furnish public spaces in hotels and offices for its high standard of sustainability.
At this years Digital Fair, BD Barcelona is presented by ICEX Spain Trade and Investment.
