Spain – Barcelona

The design firm founded in 1972 continues to celebrate fifty years of existence and production in the heart of the Olympic Oval. Here, BD Barcelona presents a body of work considered to be its best, in a campaign shot by Franco-American photographer David Luraschi, known for his colourful work with Jacquemus.

The Spanish company takes us to this emblematic location, at the top of Montjuïc mountain, designed by architects Federico Correa and Alfonso Milà for the 1992 Olympic Games. David Luraschi has chosen to place this selection of mythical and contemporary pieces like characters in a story.

Ettore Sottsass’s Shiva vase, Antoni Gaudi’s Calvet stool, Jaime Hayon’s Showtime Nude chair and Salvador Dali’s Dalilips sofa, Bracelli lamp and Leda armchair all put on a marvellous show under the Iberian sun.

Although BD Barcelona Design has now been bought out by Apartamento magazine and Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura, one of its founders, Oscar Tusquets, is still with us, along with other big names in design, art and architecture, to usher in a new era full of promise.
