B&V premieres Släde, Blat and Book, three new collections designed by edeestudio at Feria Hábitat Valencia
For the second year running, we are showcasing our new collections and the at Feria Hábitat Valencia; chairs, sofas and modular systems, hand-made pieces that B&V’s master craftsmen together with renowned designers create since 1992. If 2015 has been the year of our launch in the international markets, there is every indication that 2016 is to be our consolidation. Our stand will be located in Level 2, Pavilion 6 booth C113 within the Area D, the space dedicated to Design companies and brands.
This year, B&V introduces Blat, Book and Släde, three new collections designed by the Valencians edeestudio as well as the addition of new pieces to our already existing collections presented in 2015, with pieces particularly intended and adapted to contract and hospitality environments. Thorough selection of raw materials and finishes and the combination of craftsmanship and design are again the main focus in the collections.
Blat, wheat in Valencian language, is a collection with simple lines and light aspect. Blat is geometry in the outside and softness in the inside with curved forms that invite you to sit down and enjoy the moment. A spongy seat on steel legged base that is presented as Lounge chair and love seat with arms or armless in both cases.
Släde, meaning bobsled in Swedish, is an armchair with a tongue or spoon shape; a sturdy upholstered seat on a light and slim-lined metal structure, imitating the Nordic bobsleds, where the metallic skate holds and sustains the seat.
Lastly, Book is a collection of pieces designed to convey simplicity and elegance, a basic but must-have piece, a long lasting and very functional design thanks to its small dimensions, low back and visual lightness destined to hotel installations, lobbies, whether as a single piece or as a set.
In addition, many of the most applauded pieces presented last year grow in family complementing the existing and solid range of products designed for residential and public use. The modular seats Dolmen that evolves to turn into comfortable benches and chairs with solid wood legs designed for contract spaces. The Ego chair welcomes its Siamese sister, with the arm on the right side to create intimate spaces for conversation. Both the armchair Zip, and the Ikon sofa, extend collection with new dimensions. The armchair nominated to the German Design Awards turns into a three seater sofa whereas Ikon reduces length to a 160 cm love seat to fit smaller rooms layouts.
