Vis-à-vis de Gala
From the manufacturer:
During the ‘thirties in Paris, Salvador
Dali surrounded himself with a circle of friends involved in the
application of art to varied disciplines, above and
beyond the study of pure pictorial art. jean-michel frank, a furniture
maker and decorator of recognized prestige in the Paris of those years,
was on very good terms with Dalí
and together they worked on several ideas. The Bracelli lamp which we
present here is a classic design after Jean-Michel’s manner of designing
and working, adopted by Dalí for
his house at Port Lligat. Amongst Dalí ’s specific furnishing projects,
and constituting another for his curriculum vitae as a designer, may be
counted the garden furnishings for his
Port Lligat house, the complete architecture of the Night Club (garotte-shaped)
for the Hotel Presidente in Acapulco (1957) and another project for a
bar in California in the ‘forties.
As shown by the small selection now produced and included in this catalogue, Dalí ’s work was not restrictes to the traditional furnishing elements, but included tap fittings, handles, door-pulls, printed fabrics and objets of indeterminate use. In the 1990s a group of experts, led by oscar tusquets, set themselves the task of turning the furniture Dalí had drawn for Jean-Michel Frank into reality. Amongst these items were the Leda chair and low table, taken from the painting “Femme à la tête rose” (1935). The prototypes were made by the sculptor Joaquim Camps and Bd Ediciones de Diseño organised production and exclusive world marketing.
