Olvidada Double Suspension Light, designed by Pepe Cortés for BD Barcelona Design, is a sleek and sculptural light made of incandescent LED strips. Originally designed in 1976, the drawings were hidden away until they were rediscovered and put into production in 1984, hence the name ("olvidada" means forgotten in Spanish). The Olvidada light has since gained iconic status, thanks to its versatility and slick, high-tech look. The Olvidada Double Suspension Light looks great on its own or in a group and is suitable for both private and in commercial spaces, for example in restaurants or over a kitchen counter.
Olvidada is a collection of lights designed by Pepe Cortés for BD Barcelona Design, comprising several suspension lights and a floor light.
