Versions of the stool include three different heights and an either wood or aluminium finish. The Jamaica has won a deserved place in the history of Spanish Design and has a long commercial future before it. The Stool is apt for the both markets - home and contract due to it’s seats sculptural beauty, ergonomics, comfort, durability of materials used, it’s nobility and for it’s renowned versatility. In the US, Canada, and Mexico, the Jamaica stool is distributed by Knoll Studio.
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.
