The history of BD Barcelona Design
Formed in 1972, the “BD” in the company name originally stood for Bocaccio Design, named after a famous nightclub in Barcelona at the time. The idea for the company was conceived there by a group of designers who ran with the concept and decided to create different and eclectic pieces of art and furniture. The first pieces were inspired by the designers’ lives and imaginations, which resulted in something truly original. Over time, more creators joined BD, many of them being architects. Their collective vision came to life by creating art and furniture that was unique to Barcelona and influenced by the historic artists of the past.

These artists’ works have influenced BD’s designers to create new pieces like the bench that you see in the photo above, which was an original design by Gaudí.
