Bench B

01 product description

Product description

BD has launched at IMM Cologne the new Bench B, designed by Konstantin Grcic under the Extrusions Collection. Konstantin himself explains the new product: “We started working on the bench as a family of elements from very short, like a one-seater side chair, to a long bench of up to 6 meters. It can be for indoor or outdoor, it can have arms or not, it can be upholstered or left pure aluminium. I think we have created a kit of parts which can be turned to very different typologies or uses of this bench. What is interesting in this bench is that it makes reference to a very famous piece of furniture: The Barcelona Chair designed by Mies van der Rohe. I think it is interesting to make this reference in design. Design is not about inventing new things all the time, design is an evolution of things.”

On irony, provocative designs, Chair One as a grill, finding treasure troves, the necessity of securing contracts and the fun of advancing existing designs.
