Hypóstila, a Classic that Withstands Everything
03/08/2018 - The Hypóstila shelving was designed in 1979 by Lluís Clotet and Óscar Tusquets for BD Barcelona, with advice from the engineer Jesús Jiménez, in such a way that it can take heavy loads using minimal sections and achieve an infinity of sizes and arrangements. Even now, it's a total classic within BD's catalogue

It was awarded with the ADI-FAD Gold Delta in 1980. Minimal extruded aluminium and anodised profiles can support up to 60Kg per linear metre, and offer solutions for all types of spaces.
 
Hypóstila is a shelving that offers infinite possibilities. It is constructed using extruded aluminium sections and the various elements are joined together using pieces that work on the principle of expansion. There are no holes, so the shelves can be put in any position.
 
The Hypóstila II shelves can be combined with Hypóstila I.
 
Bd has always had a special interest in shelving –this auxiliary furnishing that keeps places tidy– and in aluminium too. In 1995, a new shelving model was manufactured, this time based on tubes along the lines of an idea of Enric Miralles.
