Here is some text from Konstantin Grcic.

Konstantin Grcic opens the Extrusions collection which he has designed for Bd Barcelona design with this table, baptised as Table B.

Its name is as simple and technical as the design itself.

Grcic has been inspired by classic BD pieces, such as the Hypóstila shelf unit (in production since 1979), in developing a tabletop of extruded aluminium with a minimal profile and for lengths of up to 360 cm.

It is offered in various finishes and with three models of legs.

Its apparent simplicity hides a complex technical development in which senior engineers have been involved.

In counterpoint, the production also includes several manual processes.

The result is a highly crafted piece with all the character of the German designer.
