In terms of design history of the past 40 years, BD Barcelona Design has been a pioneer in many ways. Well before ‘design-art’ was talked about, this Spanish company had already produced pieces by artists of the calibre of Juan Gris and Salvador Dalí.
The very concept has been part of its DNA since day one, continues to be a key element of its identity, and logically forms part of the company’s 40th birthday celebrations. The occasion will be commemorated with an exclusive, numbered collection of 40 vases from the Showtime collection, hand-painted by Jaime Hayon – an internationally acclaimed creator who has triumphantly bridged the worlds of art and design.
Jaime Hayon is the most intriguing figure in new Spanish design. He has energy, talent and a style of his own, which are all distilled into the Showtime collection he has designed for Bd Barcelona design, the most prestigious Spanish design company.
This happy encounter between a young designer and a veteran producer has led to the birth of a vases collection meant for the home, but which has the adaptability and the personality needed.
In these contrasts between classicism and modernity, Showtime reflects what has always been the very essence of Bd.
