Since its inception in the 1970s, BD has always been an atypical company. The fact that its founders and still owners came from the architecture and not from the business world marked from the beginning a culto to the beauty of the objects in some cases over their function. This, together with production processes that were more artisan than industrial, facilitated the development of products that were closer to art than to industrial design. They are characterized by their very high quality, for being produced in very short series (sometimes they are limited series), and for a handcrafted manufacture that makes each product unique. Recently, collections by designers with a strong artistic profile such as Jaime Hayon or Doshi Levien have continued to mark this path where design and art meet.
