BD Barcelona Design
Grcic + Hayon
Bench B, Konstantin Grcic
Conceived of as public seating and ranging from a single chair to a bench of more than 6 meters. The bench may be internal or external, may have arms or not, can be upholstered or simply leaving the extruded aluminium on display making it highly practical. Made using anodized extruded aluminium profiles.
Clearly inspired by the Mies Van der Rohe Barcelona chair according to designer Konstantin Grcic, “Nearly a century later, we were able to re-interpret this furniture classic in a new way, making it ergonomically better while turning it into a more systematic, technologically advanced product. Using aluminium extrusions for the curved seat/back profile and slats is a logical continuation of my previous work for BD, but also adds a great flexibility to the production of the bench.” KG
Sidetable B, Konstantin Grcic
Stylish, solid and practical. Designed by Konstantin Grcic as s a natural complement to the Bench B, within the ‘Extrusions’ collection, but Sidetable B can also be said to have its own rational and function. It is made in one piece with architectural concrete, the same material used for the base of Table B somewhat resembling a small sculpture. For interior or exterior use.
Gardenias, Jaime Hayon
Gardenias is a collection of furniture for the garden. That’s not a real genre, but it does differentiate Gardenias from other exterior furniture collections. Subtlety, beauty and memory are omnipresent in its design, along with a determination to make the collection broad, varied, multipurpose and open. Further pieces will be added in the future. There will be room for sculptural vases and planters of surprisingly fine terracotta, chairs with or without a pergola, benches and even an attractive watering can.
Gardenias, the collection of terrace furniture
One of the more interesting characteristics of the collection is the way it has translated the generally rigid and square image of outdoor metallic furniture to a language that is more romantic in form and which is also suitable for indoor use. It carries the unmistakable finger prints of Hayon in the svelte, subtle and feminine forms. Almost ‘Gaudíesque’ in its combination of metal with organic natural shapes – normally more associated with timber furniture.
The collection is composed of several models
