Concept

Jaime Hayon is the most intriguing figure in new Spanish design. He has energy, talent and a style of his own, which are all distilled into the Showtime collection he has designed for Bd Barcelona design, the most prestigious Spanish design company. This happy encounter between a young designer and a veteran producer has led to the birth of a furniture collection meant for the home, but which has the adaptability and the personality needed for contract furnishing. A collection in which plastics consort with upholstery, the gleam of lacquered wood and the tradition of fine ceramics. In these contrasts between classicism and modernity, Showtime reflects what has always been the very essence of Bd. Come and see.
