New designers

PRODUCT: Highly personal selection of local and European firms. Emerging talents who design and produce to the highest quality and ethical standards, under socially responsible conditions; clothing, accessories, footwear and jewellery that combine well together. Cosmetics and publications also. HIGHLIGHT: Pol and Berta only stock things they would wear themselves. INTERIOR: The newly opened space in the Eixample, in a 1917 listed building of architectural significance, protected as a Cultural Asset of Local Interest, is the work of the architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch, where he lived. A highly idiosyncratic, and sober building, from his ‘yellow period’, when he abandoned his Gothic and Central European style he is famous for, in a more urban and easier to replicate model of housing. The space displays the best of Barcelona based crafts, a rigorous expression of materials including wood and steel, complemented by pieces by renowned designers such as lamps by Miguel Milà, Jordi Canudas and Coderch. RECOMMENDED: The Cordera and Bielo collections, exclusive to Bassal.Store in the city.
