Concept

When we presented the Showtime Collection in back 2006, Jaime Hayon (Madrid, 1974) was a unique emerging, most intriguing young character in new Spanish design. Today, he’s a consecrated author with prestige on an international scale. His designs for BD have reaped continual success due to the personality, quality, elegance, yet amusing designs, having just the right touch of romanticism and the versatility to adapt to home as well as contract. All of this is Showtime, a collection that reflects classicism and modernity – a contrast that has always been the very essence of our company. For us this has been a complete ‘ten out of ten’ project and now reaches its 10th anniversary, celebrated with new colours, lacquers and upholstery for the poltronas; more glossy lacquers and luxurious marbles for the Multileg cabinet and low tables; special vase finishes with gold details; and two new mirrors, King and Kong which carry Hayon’s distinct hallmark.

We also present the Monkey Side Table in a new black finish. It’s a useful, solid sculpture made from architectonic cement. For indoor and outdoor use.
