BD presents a limited edition of the iconic Shiva Vase in the gold finish, designed by Ettore Sottsass.‎
The Italian architect and designer, Ettore Sottsass was one of the first to collaborate with BD back in the 70’s, 10 years before he became famous on a worldwide scale with the mythic Memphis group.‎ That’s when Sottsass travelled regularly to Barcelona and produced various designs for the Catalan editor.‎ The first one was a table baptised with the name ‘Mettsass’ in 1972.‎ He followed with an ash tray called “Manhattan” in ceramic and a glass vase called “Element of Architecture”, a lamp “Knossos” and another ceramic vase in pink, baptised with the name “Shiva”.‎ It was in 1973 when BD had just been inaugurated and he symbolised it with a modern piece of fertility.‎
The master’s genius and committed character were imprinted on the original catalogue for this iconic piece, which BD continues to produce even today.‎ In 2005, two years before Sottsass’ death, a gold prototype was made and was an award for an international competition for students of design.‎ This is the very same one that Sottsass holds in his portrait.‎ This piece has also been produced as a limited edition with a total of only 50 units.‎
