Coat-rack Germaine, 1968/2018

 

with Lluís Clotet

Producer: DAE

It was a typical beginner's exercise: a tube bent in such a way that it achieves a multi-purpose object. A place to leave umbrellas, coats, hats, bags. The prototype was made for the dressing-room at the studio of the photographer Oriol Maspons, who regularly worked with the famous French model Germaine, hence the name of the piece.

    In 2018, the company DAE showed interest in reissuing it again, opportunity that Clotet and Tusquets took to make a revision and improve its production.

    Unusually, the producer was encouraged to present it in 9 different colours.
