Shanty Cabinet

Designed by:  Doshi + Levien
Manufactured by:  BD Barcelona

A new piece added to BD’s collection of “cabinets”. A typology of furniture which was lost toward the end of the last century and which we, in the last few years have wanted to regain with the same purposeful functionality of a container, but with different character. Distinct cabinets apt for each project: Multileg (Jaime Hayon), Tout Va Bien (Antoine et Manuel), Free Port (Martí Guixé). Very few pieces allow for interventions with so much personality without depleting the function, with which they have been created for. These convert into sculptures in a dining room or in a hotel lobby. Our collection grows with the arrival of a new cabinet by Doshi Levien – designer Nipa Doshi, born in Mumbai, and Jonathan Levien of Scottish descent -, who within a short space of time have converted into one of the most unique and attractive, creative couples on the international scene. This is the second design for BD after the charming Chandlo. Named Shanty, is imagined as a patchwork of corrugated surfaces referencing improvised dwellings across the world, from Brazil to Africa and India. The cabinet collection celebrates the beauty of these seemingly temporary constructions. The corrugated façade appears to be a spontaneous composition of different colored surfaces, disguising a rational and carefully considered volume of storage. The body is asymmetric and every door opens in a distinct way. The collection has different versions and finishes. Shanty Summer and Shanty Winter, more or less colorful, Shanty Black with brass finished legs and other versions in monochrome. The cabinet can be accessorized with a new mirror system that allows for different compositions. Manufactured by BD Barcelona.

BD Barcelona

Since 1972, BD Barcelona’s focus has been on the intersection of art and design. Choosing artisan methods over mass production that often results in limited or short-lived production runs, each of BD Barcelona’s designs marks a close collaboration with an artist or designer to produce pieces that function on such a highly aesthetic level that each design truly blurs the lines between sculpture and industrial design. Throughout its history, BD Barcelona has not only expertly curated its now iconic archival collections by Antoni Gaudi , Salvador Dali, and Josep Jujol, but collaboratively developed extraordinarily engaging contemporary designs by Ettore Sottsass, Javier Mariscal, Jaime Hayon, Antoine + Manuel, Christian Zuzunaga, Doshi Levien, Pepe Cortes , and the Campana Brothers. Switch Modern delights in presenting the entire BD Barcelona collection on its website as well as highlighting several seminal furniture and accessory designs in our Atlanta showroom.
