The B Table was the first in the Extrusions collection and an aesthetic which is the product of a combination of industrial and manual processes. The result is a “highly crafted” piece which surprises with its solidity and lightness. To complement it, Konstantin Grcic has now designed the B chair, a wooden chair with pieces of aluminium in its structure. The legs are X-shaped and the seat folds, which allows for horizontal stacking and pays tribute to the name of the collection. A detail of genius. The decorative touch is concealed beneath the seat, which is offered in a varied and attractive range of colours.
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 80’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.
