Gaulino Table

Design Oscar Tusquets Blanca
1987/2011

Old rock fans never die and Oscar Tusquets loves to demonstrate this. This architect, artist —the drawing of the dama molliniana shows it— and writer, has designed nearly everything during his long career —his work has its own encyclopaedia, compiled by Juli Capella and published by Electa— and in particular many chairs, some of them much admired, but possibly none so beautiful as Gaulino. In this piece —says Tusquets— some critic detected his well-known admiration for Salvador Dalí but, when he saw it finished, it seemed to him that the clearest influences came from Antoni Gaudí and Carlo Mollino. This is why it is called Gaulino. He designed it in 1987 and since then it has become a point of reference in Spanish design. “I learned and enjoyed it very much and I consider it one of my best works. Although its appearance is totally artisanal, it was my first really industrial project in wood; that was when I realised what machines could do.”
