Barcelona Route & Showcase

34 of the city’s antique shops, galleries, designer boutiques and restoration workshops become a work of art, as part of the Tables are art route, which is being offered by the Associació per a l’Estudi del Moble.

The route and showcase competition use tables, whether as practical or decorative objects, as the connecting thread for improvising an agreeable walk entitled “La taula és art“, taking in the showcases to be found in the Barri Gòtic, Eixample, Gràcia, Sarrià – Sant Gervasi and Poblenou districts, which offer different visions using a variety of tables.

The antiques shops, galleries, designer boutiques and restoration workshops that are taking part in the initiative are all making a personal interpretation of the table in order to create a unique cultural route that includes some of the city’s most creative showcases.

Meanwhile, the Museu de les Idees [Ideas Museum] outdoes everyone else with a white table holding a huge number of colourist objects and curiosities, and the “Museu Disseny Hub” [Design Hub Museum] foyer presents eleven tables from its collection that can be seen through small windows.
