About

BD BARCELONA Designer Furniture | In 1972, a group of young architects created BD with the intention of producing and marketing furniture and other objects for their projects. Their idea was to produce both their own designs and those of the authors they admired, from Antoni Gaudí or Salvador Dalí to Ettore Sottsass or Alessandro Mendini. They were pioneers of design in Spain and immediately obtained the recognition and admiration of professionals in the sector, who were looking for something different from what was on the market. Now close to turning 50, we continue with the same nonconformist spirit as at the beginning. We are in more than 60 countries, present in the best design stores and art galleries, and working with the most avant-garde interior design and architecture studios around the world.

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. Characterised 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.
