Gaulino Armchair

Gaulino Armchair

DESIGNED BY Oscar Tusquets Blanca
FOR BD Barcelona

“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 Easy Chair is a natural evolution of the iconic Gaulino Chair, it being a little lower and wider to allow for a totally new use. It fulfills the function of an armchair but is visually much lighter.

Solid ash (wooden) structure in an either natural varnish or a lacquered open pore black finish. Plywood seat upholstered in a natural coloured or black leather.
