“There I was, glass in hand, hunting after stray ideas when simple solutions with subtle inventive details based on the theme of the bar came into my head. A stool where you can put your personal belongings, a coffee table with a hole in the centre, another with a rotating top that can be put to all kinds of new uses, and so on. Brief tales that could be written on a matchbox”. Happy Hour is a wide range of furniture for installations, which also has a role to play in the home. Launched in 2001.

One of the most charismatic designers of the new century, Alfredo Häberli was born in Buenos Aires in 1964 and trained as a designer in Zürich, where he was honoured in 2008 with an extensive retrospective of his work at the Museum für Gestaltung, motivated partly by his not leaving Switzerland, the base from which he has worked for the leading Scandinavian and European companies.

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.
