Xai Sculpture-Small Table by Barcelona Design
This project is a hallmark on the long tradition of BD's reproductions of Salvador Dali's furniture, that started with the Sofa in the form of lips, which was installed in the Sala Mae West of the Theatre Museum in the city of Figueres.
Later in time, BD reproduced other furniture and lamps. Ideas were drawn from Dali's own drawing projects and paintings. This is the same with the Xai.
We broke up the painting, "Interpretation Project for a stable-library" (1942), where there appears a characteristic Dali drawer, made up of a little lamp-table. BD has received the support of the exceptional expertise and capacity of Deyrolle, the taxidermist from Paris who maintained an intense relationship with Salvador Dali (many of Dali's pieces -bears, lions, lobster, swans...- are made by Deyrolle).
Apart from the exceptional work of the taxidermist, emphasis must be placed on the maker of little table's drawer and the little shoes in bronze.
