Concept

The precedent for the furniture designed by Salvador Dalí, for which Bd Barcelona design has the exclusive world marketing rights, is the famous sofa in the shape of a mouth which the artist created together with Oscar Tusquets in 1972 for the Mae West room at the Dalí Museum in Figueres. More than thirty years had to pass before it became possible to put this sensual design into industrial production.Thanks to polyethylene rotational moulding technology using a special process which gives the piece a slightly delicate feel, it has been possible to reproduce the realism and expressive force which Dalí dreamt of for this large-scale mouth which you can sit on or sink into.

© Salvador Dalí / Fundación Gala-Salvador Dalí Bd Barcelona design produces and markets, world-exclusively, the designs by Salvador Dalí that appear in this catalogue.

Dalilips is made in various colours. Two of them are inspired by lipsticks, such as the “Shocking Pink” of the original design which Oscar Tusquets had developed alongside Dalí. The white (which allows internal
illumination) and black versions are personal contributions by Tusquets for this new edition from Bd.

Finishes:
Polyethylene with rotational moulding process, low density for indoor use and medium density for outdoors. Colours: Pink, red Bermellón, black and ice.
