Akim as furniture

“Gaulino” by Oscar Tusquets. “Gaulino” could look like a chair designed by Gaudí in the early twentieth century, but was actually conceived in 1986 by Oscar Tusquets, considered one of the best designs in Spain. In the words of Tusquets: “In this work, some critics have detected my admiration for Salvador Dalí, but when I saw it finished, it seemed to me that the obvious influences came from Antoni Gaudí and Carlo Mollino: that is why the chair was called Gaulino. Although its appearance is totally handmade, the Gaulino was my first truly industrial project in wood; There I realized what the machines could get to do. I learned and had a lot of fun and I consider it one of my best jobs. ”
