From the past century Pepe Cortés has been part of the family of Designers at BD, from back in the 80's. The Olvidada lamp owes its name to when Pepe designed this piece in 1976, but had 'forgotten' (the translation of olvidada in English) it in a drawer until BD started producing it in 1984. Since then it has remained as part of BD's catalogue and with time, has converted into a Spanish classic design piece - recognised for its iconic combination of bulbs which have recently been rejuvenated thanks to LED technology. The well-known ceiling and standing lamp versions now have three new additional configurations: double, triple and chandelier.
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.
