Invisible personage - BD Barcelona Design

The "Invisible Personage" armchair now continues BD's long tradition that began back in 1991 with the Leda table and chair, that of producing furniture painted by Salvador Dalí.

When reviewing the Master's work, we discovered furniture in his paintings which after receiving approval by the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation, we decided to produce with Oscar Tusquets' assessment, life-member of the Foundation and personal friend of Dalí.

"Invisible Personage" is extracted from the "Singularities" painting, painted by Salvador Dali in 1935. During those years Dalí completed a series with absent figures, which he called invisible personages.

This product is a limited edition of 20 units.

In the Paris of the 1930s, Salvador Dalí (1904/1989) surrounded himself with a circle of friends working in the application of art to a number of varied disciplines, beyond the study of purely pictorial art. One of these, Jean-Michel Frank, an acclaimed furniture designer and decorator in Paris at that time, got on extremely well with Dalí, and together they developed a number of ideas.

One example of this is the Bracelli lamp, a classic design in Jean-Michel’s manner of designing and working that Dalí adopted for his home in Portlligat. Among Dalí’s projects, which add to his CV as a designer, are the garden furniture for his home in Portlligat, the complete architecture of the Night Club (in the shape of a hedgehog) for the Hotel Presidente in Acapulco (1957) and a project for a bar in California in the 1940s.

His creations were not limited to traditional furniture elements, but included taps, handles, knobs, prints and objects of indeterminate use. In 1933, Dalí even registered the patent for the design of a bench as an outdoor seat.

In the 1990s, a team of experts led by Oscar Tusquets set out to bring to life the furniture that Dalí had sketched for Jean-Michel Frank, including the Leda chair and low table taken from the 1935 painting “Femme à latête rose” (1935). The sculptor Joaquim Camps was responsible for breathing life into them and BD Barcelona Design took charge of their worldwide exclusive production and marketing.
