BD Barcelona and Belén Moneo Rethink Scrap Materials in REmix Collection

BD Barcelona Design recently revealed REmix Collection vol.5 is designed by Belén Moneo with a focus on her interests in plasticity, geometry, material, light, transparency, and color. The overarching goal of the REmix Project is to give otherwise obsolete scrap materials a second chance at life through recovering, recycling, and reusing.

In 2001, Rafael Moneo – Belén Moneo’s father and architect – designed the Romana Table. Now she faced the challenge of converting deadstock table legs from the Romana into limited edition bookshelves and a colorful collection of bookends.

The Emérita shelf is a powerful piece, utilizing BD’s signature material of Plexiglas and those geometric wooden table legs mentioned above, a floating sensation is created through the viewer’s perception. When inspected horizontally, Emérita reveals a horizontal plane full of shadows that was the jumping off point for the accompanying bookends design.
