Solid wood bench with back

Manufacturer BD Barcelona Design

Calvet Collection
In contrast with what happened in general to almost all the Modernista furniture which ended up going out of fashion, furniture designed by Gaudí is still as modern today as it was when it was first designed. Perhaps this is because it is more reminiscent of sculpture than mere benches and chairs. The Calvet armchair is outstanding amongst these designs because of its expressive force. It was designed along with four other pieces –a stool, a mirror, a chair and a bench– for the house of the same name.

Solid varnished oak.

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.
