Salvador Dali , the genius painter of Figueras, master of surrealism , was also the author of a series of decorative pieces in which he left his particular mark. We present these objects and others, inspired by their universe, always as eccentric as surprising.
"Dalí lips": Inspired by the fleshy lips of Mae West, famous actress and sex-symbol of the golden years of Hollywood, Dalí designed this sofa in 1972 together with Óscar Tusquets. The work has become in its own right one of the great icons of pop art. We can find it in the Mae West room of the Figueres Museum, dedicated to the figure of the painter. The piece is a genius that has inspired many other designers, who have relied on this creation to make new replicas, in different materials and in multiple colors.
For any human being, using a lobster as a telephone handset would be nothing short of unfeasible madness. However, the Catalan genius created this piece of collector that has now reached the category of myth. As mythical as those famous soft watches that seemed to melt in many of the canvases that he painted, and which we can now have in our own dining room or work table as an accessory. Pieces as surreal as creative, that bring us a little closer to the decorative universe of Dalí.
