Concept

Bd has always had a special interest in shelving –this auxiliary furnishing that keeps places tidy– and in aluminium too. The Hypóstila shelving was designed in 1979 by Lluís Clotet and Óscar Tusquets, with advice from the engineer Jesús Jiménez, in such a way that it can take heavy loads using minimal sections and achieve an infinity of sizes and arrangements. In 1995, a new shelving model was manufactured, this time based on tubes along the lines of an idea of Enric Miralles.
