Design Meets Art: BD Barcelona in Clerkenwell

SEEN loved visiting the BD Barcelona showroom during Clerkenwell Design Week 2017 recently. The showroom displayed the playful and vibrant designs of Jaime Hayon, the Campana Brothers, Doshi Levien and Färg & Blanche, very much espousing the brand’s motto of Design Meets Art.

Susto flores BD Barcelona

Berry Street in evolving Clerkenwell is certainly enlivened by the colourful and bold furniture, mirrors and storage designs that are a refreshing contrast to industrial processes and bland modernism. Who can resist the smiling Happy Susto Vases by Hayon? Or appreciate the haunting ‘Invisible Personage’ armchair, taken from a painting by Salvador Dalí? Eclectic and eccentric, the designs belong to the individualism of artisanal processes and artistic practice. Long may they continue.
