Gaudi - Calvet Bench
Antoni Gaudí (1852/1926) is, without doubt, the most internationally well-known Spanish architect. But is not only his buildings and brilliant architectural solutions that have travelled the globe. His integrated conception of architecture led him to pay attention, not only to structural calculations, but also to all the decorative elements, including furniture, that would form part of the building. The admiration felt by modern designers for the furniture designed by Gaudí has not gone unnoticed by BD which was the first company to rescue them from history by embarking on their serial production using traditional art and craft techniques and the same materials –varnished solid oak– in order to reproduce all the rich detail displayed by the originals when they were first produced.

The Casa Calvet in the Carrer Casp in Barcelona was the Catalan architect’s first housing project and it was awarded a prize by Barcelona city council for being the best building in 1900. Two years later, Gaudí designed the furniture, carved in oak, for the offices on the ground floor of the building.They were first produced by the Casa y Bardés company and they are preserved at the Gaudí Museum in the Park Güell.
