Bracelli, Muletas and Cajones lamps
A standing lamp which corresponds to the work of Jean Michel Frank, adopted by Dalí for his house at Port Lligat. The zig-zag pyramidal pedestal is covered in gold leaf due to it’s being a noble metal and one of Dalí’s obsessions. The Muleta also is an addition to his obsessions.
A standing lamp taken from Dalí’s designs for Jean Michel Frank. The ‘Muletas’ had its beginnings at the surreal stage and is an obsession which persists in Dalí’s works as can be seen in “El Sueño” 1937 (The Dream) and “Autorretrato blando con beicon frito” 1941 (A soft self - portrait with fried bacon), amongst others.
A standing lamp taken from Dalí’s drawings for Jean Michel Frank. With this, Dalí introduced the little drawers at the base of the lamp, an idea he already used on other occasions for example, “Venus de Milo aux tiroirs” (Venus of Milo with drawers). The idea of connecting the electronic cord through one of the drawers is a contribution made by Architect Oscar Tusquets Blanca.
