A dentist by profession, designer of the Binaria stool in collaboration with the industrial designer Otto Canalda.
Dr. Jordi Badía was born in Barcelona in 1959. Equipped with capacity for aesthetic enjoyment and inventiveness, he also suffered from a persistent lumbago.
After receiving his medicine PhD "cum laude" from the University of Barcelona, he began studying architecture at the ETSAB. The persistence of contractures lead him to collaborate with the designer Otto Canalda, to design the "Binary" chair. Its immediate success was rewarded with a Silver Delta ADI-FAD award in 2005.
His chronic low back pain has since disappeared.
