 BD BARCELONA

BD BARCELONA

Design since 1972. BD has been around for over half a century. It was founded in a nightclub in 1972 by a bunch of young architects and designers from Barcelona. They broke into the design world with a new vision: to produce and market their designs, and the designs of their friends with complete creative freedom and design criteria. Beginning with the designs of Ettore Sottsass and Álvaro Siza, BD provoked a curiosity about design. These early pieces helped bring international recognition to the country’s design scene, and many of them still exist today.   50 years later, they are an international design company run by a new collective ownership —Nacho Alegre, Marco Velardi and Omar Sosa from Apartamento Magazine; Pablo Bofill Ricardo Bofill, Hernán Cortes, Luna Paiva from Ricardo Bofill Taller de Arquitectura; Igor Urdampilleta from Arquitectura-G and Fernando de la Mata— all architects, publishers and designers. Along with one of the founders, Oscar Tusquets, this group fosters the same nonconformist spirit BD has had since its beginnings. Expressing the diversity of the world and its values. Their independence as a company fuels their intentions and supports this purpose, and they are now expanding their design dialogue to delve into diverse realms of creativity. In design and in everything they do.
