Design by Eduard Samsó
Year of release: 1991

Size:130x90x60
Material: Mirror composed of 7 different square two-sided mirrors of different sizes, with variable position. The mirrors are plane with exception of the one marked H, which is concave. Structure, ferrules and discs in zinc-plated iron.
Seven mirrors randomly deployed on a zig-zagging spine configure the object. The seven faces are a thought, an intuition and, as such, something never definitive, always unfinished... In order to be able to define themselves, they need a place to reflect and thus to inhabit. In contrast, at the spine everything is terminated, constructed... There everything is definitive and conclusive. Intentionally, a part of this spine is left exposed to view in order to give a few clues as to the laws governing its construction.
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.
