Industrial design genius Konstantin Grcic has leant his hand to bd Barcelona and now offers Table B, the first piece to drop from the ‘Extrusions Collection’, a family of furniture synthesizing industrial aesthetics and manual processing.
Drawing obvious visual inspiration from bd Barcelona’s Hypóstila shelving unit, a signature piece from the Spanish manufacturers 1970’s catalogue, Table B seems to transcend time, adopting a striking visual of lineal sophistication.
Winning favours and taking top honours at the 2011 Red Dot awards, the Table top finds itself made of extruded aluminum with scotch anodised polish in silver or matt black. From one side appearing to float seamlessly and from the other, dipping to expose its hollow length.
Offering three options of legs; natural timber, concrete and stainless steel, Table B becomes a marriage of materials, all of which striking and bearing different visually weights, the latter two having the ability to live outdoors.
Adding a chair model to the collection, Grcic offers Chair B. Complimenting the visual style of Table B and finding itself equally as attractively engineered, Chair B is a sleek, folding timber chair with a lightweight concealed aluminum under-seat structure available in different colours for some sneaky fun. The fun doesn’t stop there however, with Chair B’s X-shaped legs having the ability to stack horizontally – a mean feat from the adaptable Grcic.
Bd Barcelona’s Table B with natural timber legs is currently available for viewing at the KE-ZU showroom.
