Xai, 2013

with Deyrolle, Paris

Producer: Bd Barcelona Design




Presentation in Barcelona

This project is a hallmark on the long tradition of BD’s reproductions of Salvador Dali’s furniture, that started with the Sofa in the form of lips, which was installed in the Sala Mae West of the Theatre Museum in the city of Figueres.

Later in time, BD reproduced other furniture and lamps.  Ideas were drawn from Dalí’s own drawing projects and paintings.  This is the same with the XAI.  We broke up the 1942 painting, Interpretation Project for a stable-library (last photo), where there appears a characteristic Dalí drawer, made up of a little lamp-table.  BD has received the support of the exceptional expertise and capacity of Deyrolle, the taxidermist from Paris who maintained an intense relationship with Salvador Dalí (many of Dalí’s pieces – bears, lions, lobster, swans are made by Deyrolle).  Apart from the exceptional work of the taxidermist, emphasis must be placed on the maker of little table’s drawer and the little shoes in bronze.

With the approval of the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí, BD has decided to launch a limited edition of twenty white lambs, and one unique version in black. Naturally, as each piece is unique, each little table is in reality an only piece.
