Showtime Chair Collection

by BD Barcelona Design

The Showtime Chair is an iconic design, created by Jaime Hayon for BD Barcelona Design in 2007. The chair, like Hayon, has since become a global success. The Showtime chair bears the sleek, organic shape so characteristic of Hayon's designs. The elegantly rounded plywood seat and backrest are joined at the armrests with metallic buttons, which give the chair a distinctly contemporary twist. With multiple upholstery and base options available, the Showtime chair can be adapted to suit most needs, whether as a dining chair at home or in a restaurant or as a guest chair around a meeting room table at the office.

The Showtime chair comes in a normal version with a lower backrest and in a "Nude" version with a higher, more rounded backrest. The chair can be specified with a sled base, wooden legs, swivel base or steel legs with castors. The plywood structure of the chair itself comes in multiple finishes, from lacquered MDF to a variety of natural and stained wood veneers. In addition, the seat and / or back of the chair can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics and leathers. Please contact us for more details on available options.

Showtime is a collection of furniture and accessories designed by Jaime Hayon for BD Barcelona Design which includes chairs, armchairs, cabinets, mirrors and vases.
