BD Art Editions – Oscar Tusquets
Old rockers never die and Oscar Tusquets is eager to demonstrate this. This architect, artist and writer has designed nearly everything during hislong career. In particular many chairs, some of them very admired but possibly none of them are as beautiful as the Gaulino. Tusquets explains that in this piece some critic detected his well-known admiration for Salvador Dalí but, when he saw it finished, it seemed to him that the clearest influences came from Antoni Gaudí and Carlo Mollino. This is why it is called Gaulino. He designed it in 1987 and since then it has become a reference in Spanish design. The table was designed in 2011 as a complement of the chair.

Casalto was created in 2017 in Brussels by architect Eric Willemart. The project was born from a childhood dream and combining by the love of beautiful materials with stacking games.
Distributed across into five collections, Casalto offers exclusive tables, lighting and accessories in earthenware, hand-blown glass, marble and precious metal.
Each collection will transport you into a world where imagination meets travel. Casalto will take you to Vienna, Havana, Saint-Malo, Paris or Soho. Our collections have been inspired by the atmospheres and spirit of these cities.
5 collections for resolutely different atmospheres. Welcome to the world of Casalto.
Although born and trained in Madrid, he was forged as a designer with Fabrica, the breeding ground of creativity run by Benetton near the Italian city of Treviso, where he arrived in 1997, when he had barely turned 24, to work under Oliviero Toscani, who would soon put him in charge of the design department. It was at Fabrica that he first worked with BD on the Mail Me project.
A company that has always attributed such great importance to the author of the designs could never forget the great figures in history. That is why the BD catalogue of contemporary creations has always included those by admired classical masters.
A sheep with a drawer in its stomach, a chair that wears heels, these truly surreal works of art could only come from the mind of Salvador Dalí. Pioneering, avant-garde provocateur, Surrealist, as famous for his personality as his work, a true icon, his legacy remains unrivalled in the current century.
