Dalilips, 1975


with Salvador Dalí

Producer: Bd Barcelona Design


Sofa designed by Oscar Tusquets together with Salvador Dalí. Originally the sofa—big soft lips to sit on—was designed as part of the three-dimensional picture of the Mae West room, in the Teatre-Museu Salvador Dalí in Figueres.

    Then when he thought about the possibility of mass-producing it, Dalí was enthused by the hyper-realist detail that could be obtained with polyurethane injection, but after several tries it was determined that the technology of this material was not sufficiently developed to ensure the quality of such large items, and so it was decided not to mass-produce it.

    Since 2004 it has been produced by Bd Barcelona Design using the novel roto-moulding technique.
