Solid varnished oak. In contrast with what happened in general to almost all the Modernista furniture which ended up going out of fashion, furniture designed by Gaudí is still as modern today as it was when it was first designed. Perhaps this is because it is more reminiscent of sculpture than mere benches and chairs. The admiration felt by modern designers for the furniture designed by Gaudí has not gone unnoticed by Bd which was the first company to rescue them from history by embarking on their serial production using traditional art and craft techniques and the same materials –varnished solid oak– in order to reproduce all the rich detail displayed by the originals when they were first produced. The Batlló chair and bench produced by Bd are an exact reproduction of those anatomical deigns, both in shape and materials.
