Cheekily calling to legendary 20th century Italian architect Carlo Mollino’s surrealistic classics, designer Oscar Tusquets adds an impressive round dining table in the same vein to his Carlina series. Its smoked glass tabletop exposes the visually intriguing supporting structure, with punctuating twisting stretchers made of dark solid ash in a triangulated configuration.

An eclectic edge and quality manufacturing are cornerstones of BD Barcelona, a design collective founded in 1972 by a handful of young buck architects. The initial goal was to realize their own object and furniture design for their respective projects and on their own terms.
This objective continues, yet other designers have entered its stable, both young such as fellow Barcelona-native Cristian Zuzunaga and legacy heroes such as the late Italian superstar Ettore Sottsass. They have brought to market the flights of fancy of Salvador Dali, and taken on modern challenges by reusing leftover materials in a collection called Remix. The stable of celebrated creatives include Jamie Hayon, Oscar Tuesquets, Stephen Burks, Konstantin Grcic and Doshi Levien.
Beauty guided the founding nonconformists from the start, and it still does as they enter their sixth decade in business. Artisanal craftsmanship—all in Barcelona and surrounding parts–and a luxurious sensibility merge with state-of-the-art technologies and an architect’s practicality.
