Antoni Gaudi Table

New Gaudi center table – Limited edition

To celebrate Bessa’s 1st anniversary, Bessa created an exclusive limited edition piece inspired by Antoni Gaudi‘s designs. The table is made of 100 kilos of solid brass and is reminiscent of the architectural façade of the Batlló House dominated by flowing organic lines.

Antoni Gaudi Table

Inspired by the colors and geometric shapes of the tiles in Batlló House’s roof, the Gaudi table is covered with 300 triangles. Each one of them was manually foliated with silver and gold leaf and painted artistically. An exclusive work that stands out from conventional furniture pieces.

Sagrada Familia building
Literally ‘Sacred Family’ this church is the largest of all building by this famous Spanish architect.

This is one of the most fascinating examples of Spanish architecture from the last one hundred years. I’ve visited it on many trips but each visit unveils a new thread, a new detail.
The building tells the story of Christianity, obviously from a Spanish catholic viewpoint, and feels more like an object of reverence than a cathedral which is a place to revere. Maybe once completed (but when?!) the space will become more focused on what surely the architect intended it to be, a cathedral to worship God.

Park Güell
A great place to relax, enjoy the countryside and gain great views out over Barcelona. The best Gaudi architecture is at the lower, south end of Park Guell, primarily close to the southern entry. However we suggest if going by Metro getting off at Vallcarca and using escalators to almost reach the top of the Park. This way you can enjoy Park Guell walking down through it and getting more and more Gaudiesque. A fantastic pink house, the home of Antoni Gaudi for around 20 years is in the middle of the lower section.
