Concept of beauty is originated in ancient Greece with Plato. According to him beauty is independent from certain forms and time, it’s reflected in different forms and concepts. This has been the reference point for BOU, seeking refined forms and concepts inspired by universal beauty.

It has specific focus on details in all objects and art pieces in order to stimulate senses and inspire through design. Natural material such as marble, glass, wood, ceramic, leather and others convert into art pieces, lightning designs and furniture in BOU.
