The challenge was to design a light armchair, not too high, using wood and leather. At the beginning, it was going in a different direction, but after making various models, prototypes and considering BD’s design team’s different perspectives on the matter, the result has inevitably drawn toward what is now the Gaulino chair, which was designed nearly 30 years ago. We did not envision it so, but the ergonomics and the aesthetic coherence of this piece has taken us toward a solution much like the Gaulino chair, an heiress of Gaudí and Mollino, and have decided to conserve the name.” OSCAR TUSQUETS
The Gaulino Chair is one of the best designs by Oscar Tusquets. The chair is made integrally from wood and leather and has converted into an icon in Spanish design. Its name comes from the influences that inspired the designer: Antoni Gaudi and Carlo Mollino.
