Jamaica Stool

by BD Barcelona Design


The Jamaica Stool, designed by Pepe Cortés for BD Barcelona Design, is a slick and minimalist bar stool with an instantly recognisable shape.  The stool is widely recognised as a Spanish design classic and one of the best designed bar stools of all time.  The Jamaica stool comes in 3 different heights with the seat either in the classic cast aluminium or in solid beech.  The lowest version of the stool also comes with castors.  The Jamaica Stool works well in both private and in commercial spaces, for example in bars, restaurants or around the kitchen counter.

The stool is available in 3 heights (45, 66 or 77 cm) and 2 seat finishes: aluminum or wood. Please make your selection from the options above.

Pepe Cortés, born in Barcelona in 1946, studied design at Eina School where he was later a teacher. At the beginning of the '70s he linked up with professionals in different areas and founded the Grupo Abierto de Disefio (Open Design Group). During that decade he designed the Oriol and Cubic jewellery, the Werner record store and the Poliglas offices.  He now collaborates with design companies worldwide, including BD Barcelona Design.

BD Barcelona Design is a unique brand at the intersection between art and design.  Founded in 1972, Its owners come from an architectural background and have consistently championed beauty over pure functionality. Its skilled craftsmen in Barcelona create superior quality furniture and objects from design icons such as Antoni Gaudi, Salvador Dali and Ettore Sottsass as well as leading contemporary designers such as Jaime Hayon.
