Description

Batlló bench designed by Antoni Gaudí is a reproduction by BD Barcelona Design, entirely made of solid varnished oak and it's part of the serie of furniture designed by Gaudí for Casa Batlló, including a chair and a bench.

The furniture Gaudí originally designed for the main dining room is also preserved at the Gaudí Museum in the Park Güell. 

In 1906, Gaudí finished work on the Casa Batlló, a typical urban house on Barcelona’s Passeig de Gràcia, which he transformed into one of the most outstanding buildings in the city.

 

In contrast with what happened in general to almost all the Modernista furniture which ended up going out of fashion, furniture designed by Gaudí is still as modern today as it was when it was first designed. Perhaps this is because it is more reminiscent of sculpture than mere benches and chairs.

 

The admiration felt by modern designers for the furniture designed by Gaudí has not gone unnoticed by BD Barcelona which was the first company to rescue them from history by embarking on their serial production using traditional art and craft techniques and the same materials –varnished solid oak– in order to reproduce all the rich detail displayed by the originals when they were first produced.

BD Barcelona Design

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.
