Products by Antoni Gaudí
A company that has always attributed such great importance to the author of the designs could never forget the great figures in history.That is why the Bd catalogue of contemporary creations has always included those by admired classical masters. The fact that designsby Charles R. Mackintosh, Adolf Loos, Josef Hoffmann and Giuseppe Terragni have been produced again by the company is wellknown, but what is even more outstanding is the task it has undertaken to produce, for the first time, the fascinating furniture thatAntoni Gaudí designed for some of his most outstanding works of architecture and some of the designs by josep maria jujol, hismost favoured acolyte. antoni gaudí(1852/1926)is, without doubt, the most internationally well-known Spanish architect. But is not only his buildings andbrilliant architectural solutions that have travelled the globe. His integrated conception of architecture led him to pay attention, notonly to structural calculations, but also to all the decorative elements, including furniture, that would form part of the building. Theadmiration felt by modern designers for the furniture designed by Gaudí has not gone unnoticed by Bd 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.
