Spanish art furniture manufacturer BD Barcelona Design offers a limited edition of the famous Gaulino chairs reinterpreted by designer Oscar Tusquets; the seat, completely hand-painted, recalls the elegant fur of tigers for an iconic and unique result!

The Gaulino Easy Chair is an armchair which gives the impression of being light. It has a not so high backrest, manufactured in wood and leather using artesanal and industrial processes. It serves to sit on in a different way. It is a little lower and more comfortable, due to the not so apparent virtues of the Gaulino Chair, which is its amazing comfortableness. This is a more robust version but carries the same aesthetics, inherited from Gaudí and Mollino.

BD Barcelona Design introduced it back in 2016 to offer other uses than accompanying a table. Now it is presented in a limited edition, hand painted by its author and is part of the Art Editions catalogue. This is not the first time that Tusquets has personalised a seat for this collection. Several years ago, he painted 20 unique pieces. This is proof of authorship and are already part of private collections.

«A limited edition of 50 unique pieces, where the seat has been painted one by one by myself, with the interpretations of a tiger’s skin. This edition celebrates, on the one hand, BD’s 50th Anniversary, and on the other hand, the Year of the Tiger in the East. The leather is minimally altered. It is not ‘pressed’ and preserves the imperfections of the animal. The frame is stained, revealing the natural grains of the ash». Oscar Tusquets.

The Fusion of Art and Design in the Home

The fusion of art and design in the home: new trends aim for absolute beauty.

The latest trends in interior design show an appreciation for artistic furniture, i.e. furniture designed by distinguished artists who, by combining design and quality materials, have created a perfect fusion of functionality and beauty.

Many furniture manufacturers try to reach agreements with the families of famous artists to authenticate and certify all products designed by the chosen artist. For example, the famous Spanish furniture manufacturer BD Barcelona Design has managed to reach an agreement to authenticate and certify all products by Antoni Gaudi.

Buying such a product means having a real work of art in the home that will attract all the attention and the rest of the furniture will be built around it!

Interior designers aim to cultivate beauty and venture on the luxury of things well done, while combining art with functionality to offer unique pieces with a strong personality. In contrast with what happened in general to almost all the Modernista furniture which ended up going out of fashion, furniture designed by artists like Gaudì or Salvador Dalì is still as modern today as it was when it was first designed.

This project is a hallmark on the long tradition of BD’s reproductions of Salvador Dali’s furniture. This is Xai,  a sculpture-small table, absolutely unique and iconic!

What about the Salvador Dalì Vis à Vis sofa?! A typical surreal interpretation of a piece of furniture extremely bourgeois and conventional. This piece carries the appearance of human elements – a feminine hand, one with a jewel and another masculine one with a watch– embracing those seated.

People shape cultures, and cultures shape lives. Each home, in each culture, creates a sense of belonging based on unique architecture, objects, traditions, and the people that inhabit it. The concept of this object (below) is to weave together these experiences. The hen, which in the past was found in most homes, providing eggs and meat, represents home and living. The candle holder brings a sense of home, whilst the hen standing on the egg, represents the transformed city. This is the story how the egg and the hen, the city and the culture, each formed the other in a cycle of creation, always posing the question: What came first?

Alessandro Mendini is another unique artist characterised by his great generosity amongst many of his other qualities. He was the one that defined the concept of “neoartesanado postindustrial” (new post industrial crafted art) much like what we do at BD, ever since the business started in 1972.
