BD Barcelona Design is the Spanish company with the highest international prestige in design. What, in its foundation in 1972 was an expression of almost insolent rebellion by a group of young, unsatisfied architects, soon became a productive philosophy with a mission to break moulds, even commercial ones.
The Bocaccio Design (a clue for those who were not already in on the secret) of the Barcelona of the early seventies was created by Pep Bonet, Cristian Cirici, Lluís Clotet, Mireia Riera and Oscar Tusquets as a vehicle for the production of all those items of furniture, objects and accessories which could not be found in shops. It might have turned out to be nothing more than an arrogant idea, but in fact became a unique experience, offering an interpretation of design hitherto unknown in Spain: a new sensibility, a different perception of everyday objects.    www.bdbarcelona.com
