BUM BUM was born from the principle of not designing objects, but rather musical instruments to be used for another purpose; the same as a person who holds a shell to their ear to hear the ocean. This collection that has tubular shapes allows us to experiment with light and sound simultaneously. It’s “argonautic” form enables us to create a new environment, as well as atmospheric spaces, wherever we are. The collection is made up of a sofa, a table, an armchair and “toro”(bull), a unique member with a great variety of functions. It is a collection designed for the God of the sea, Neptune, and the mermaids that dance in time with the waves…It’s that simple… a summer dream.

The Catalan designer Eugeni Quitllet was born on 17th April 1972 in Ibiza. He graduated from ‘La Llotja’ art school in Barcelona. Through his creative vocabulary he exceeds simple relationships between function and style unveiling innovative objects. Between drawing, sculpture and contemporary archaeology, Quitllet literally reveals silhouettes hidden in the material, extremely visual skeletal objects elegantly master fullness and emptiness often with a touch of humour: the Masters chair combines the 3 contours of legendary seats by Eames, Saarineen and Jacobsen, the K Ray lamp is an organic UFO, a network of veins hol – lowed out of the material which results in an object suspended in a frame, his signature method prevalent naturally in several of the designer ’ s projects: the Shine vases, the Light Air lamp, the 0’Clock lamp, without forgetting the O Ring watch, a hole in time in the true sense, best seller of the brand Fossil modernising watchmaking codes. Eugeni Quitllet is a design world freak capable of devouring the whole of our environment in his own way to serve it up to us transformed .
