Taken from ‘Femme à tête de roses‘ (1935) (Woman with a head of roses). It was sufficient for this sculpture to be made as a three dimensional piece, remaining faithful to every detail in Dalí’s painting.
Dalí affirmed: “A chair can be used even to sit on, but only on one condition: That we sit uncomfortably.” We can sit on the Leda, but due to the fact that it only has three legs and that the chair is heavy, it being made of solid brass, is more a work of art than a functional piece of furniture.
In 2009 we commemorated the 20th Anniversary of the death of Salvador Dalí and BD wished to add its special homage by producing a special limited edition of his fantastic furniture collection. This lamp is also available in the Black Label edition.
Structure of brass by lost-wax casting, made in various parts; which are welded together, forming the structure. The parts have a polished, glossy surface, and include a clear, 25-micron varnish based on high-strength epoxy resins, air dried.
60 x 47 x h.92 cm
Available as structure in polished cast brass varnish or in black patina cast brass without varnish (Black Label).
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.
