Rarely does a graphic designer (two, in this case) go into the field of furniture design. We have to go far back in time to find them, to the times of the high and low reliefs. This is exactly what Antoine Audiau and Manuel Warosz have done, a couple of extraordinary Parisian graphic artists who sign their works as Antoine+Manuel. The cabinet they have designed for this new collection brought out by BD Barcelona Design is a surprising mixture of applied arts, hieroglyphic language, contemporary graphics, fantasy and optimism. It is produced with the quality of yesterday but using today’s technologies. Launched in 2009.

Antoine Audiau and Manuel Warosz met at art school in Paris. When they left it was as a professional pair, under the name of Antoine + Manuel, representing the sum of two ways of working. Each of them explores his favourite fields and methods of working. They combine hand drawing and computer illustration with photography and typographical design. The result, although varied, has an evident unity and a unique graphic style. The Decorative Arts Museum in Paris is putting on a retrospective exhibition of their work in 2009, including commissions for Yale University, Christian Lacroix, Sèvres, Galleries Lafayette and Coca-Cola. The cabinet they have designed for BD is their first work in the world of furniture.

Since its origins in the 1970’s, BD has always been an atypical company. Its founders and still current owners, who come from an architectural background rather than the business field, have oriented BD’s production from the very start by cultivating beauty, in some cases above their function. Accompanied with artisanal processes instead of mass production, the new products always have more proximity to art than industrial design. Characterised by superior quality, short-series productions (and on occasion limited editions), and unique pieces due to crafted manufacturing. In the 80’s, BD pleasantly surprised by editing Gaudí’s furniture for his famous buildings and in the early 90’s, BD again astounded by introducing an exclusive first collection of furniture and lamps designed by Dalí. Recently the Collections and Designers with an accentuated artistic profile like Jaime Hayon and Doshi Levien, continue to point the way where design and art meet together.
