New York has always something to drop by there. An interest, an activity. If you add design, it becomes the place to be for tourists, but also for fans and brands. Last May was the occasion thanks to ICFF, and Mobles 114 was there.
Technically, at NYCxDESIGN, the event for global design in the city. Thanks to the collaboration among the city council, regional govermnment and BCD Barcelona Centro de Diseño, 15 companies related to innovation and creativity have been pioneers selected on an international opening.
Barcelona has a distinct quality, worth to “profit and strengthen”, as Major Ada Colau said. Design and creation are these qualities.
And this has been translated there in New York, thanks also to the nomination of a number of products for Interior Design magazine Awards, on their first-ever edition. Glad and proud to find TUBE chair designed by Eugeni Quitllet for Mobles 114.
Museu del Disseny is the result of merging the collections of the Museum of Decorative Arts, the Museum of Ceramics, the Museum of Textile and Clothing and the Graphic Arts Cabinet in Barcelona. It’s been the first to open its doors, whilst the Museum will be opened next December.
The Documentation Center holds more than 20.000 documents, books and specialized archives focused on different topics. Its aim is to create a richer and plural vision of design, and its relation with daily life.
The contents of the Archive are enriched thanks to the donations of institutions such as Barcelona Centre de Disseny (BCD), Associació de Directors d’Art i Dissenyadors Gràfics (ADG FAD), Associació de Disseny Industrial (ADI FAD), etc.
The center contains a Reading Room with 66 reading points. The bibliographic information service provides information about the Documentation Center, its reserves, its facilities and services, as well as assistance and advice in the search for information. Other types of requests, such as, technical consultations, dating of images or works, etcetera, are not included in this service. In these cases, the Library allows access to its documental reserves.
The Documentation Center is furnished with BBL Shelving System by mobles 114. Reading points are formed by Pey tables and Green chairs designed by Mariscal, and next to the windows there are some spaces more comfortable and relaxed furnished with Om Basic armchairs by Martín Azúa.
