Walking Hen Candleholder

$15,428per item

About

PostCraft is a collection that builds cultural bridges, inviting us to broaden our view of the world, to look beyond the borders of Europe and the West and to consider that art and creativity can create new and important dialogues that benefit us all. This collection is the artist’s interpretation of pre, during and post-oil eras that have defined the Middle East, creating a bridge between the three historical periods. Each era’s impact on the other is expressed through the the fluidity and transitional qualities of the vases. Each period is represented by the distinct textures of each vase. A raw and earthy coral effect symbolises the time before oil was discovered; a luxurious gold foil façade bears testimony to the wealth and prosperity that came with its’discover; the post-oil world, driven by technology and sustainability, is shown through glossy metallic. Each piece of work has journeyed through time, and has a story to tell. Limited edition serie of 8 unique pieces + 2 prototype + 2 artist proof. 24-carat gold plated cast brass claws and steel link. Cement eggs.

About the Maker

BD Barcelona Design

Since its origins in the 1970’s, BD Barcelona Design 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 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. More recently, Collections and Designers with an accentuated artistic profile such as Jaime Hayon, Campana Brothers, Färg & Blanche and Joel Escalona continue to point the way where design and art meet together. Design meets art. Since 1972.
