Dreams Cabinet for BD Barcelona
Dreams Cabinet is a collaboration between BD Barcelona and Cristian Zuzunaga, the key being the pixel, which has given him fame and international recognition. He has said that his style is fruit to a dream he had, which is precisely the name given to this piece: Dreams.
The cabinet is presented in three versions. A coloured one, black on white or white on black versions which are all additions to the collection of BD’s “cabinets”. A typology of furniture that was lost toward the end of the last century and which in the last few years, has been recuperated with the same function as always: to be a container, but differentiated in character. Each one is distinct for each project: Multileg (Jaime Hayon), Tout Va Bien (Antoine et Manuel), Free Port (Martí Guixé), Shanty (Doshi Levien). Few pieces allow for interventions with such personality without depleting the function for which they have been created. They convert into sculptures for the lounge area of a home, or the foyer of a hotel.
About BD Barcelona Design: Design meets art. Since 1972
Since its origins in the 1970’s, BD Barcelona Design 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 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. More recently, Collections and Designers with an accentuated artistic profile such as Jaime Hayon, Cristian Zuzunaga and Xavier Mañosa continue to point the way where design and art meet.
