The chair Gaulino is one of the best designs of Oscar Tusquets.

Completely made of wood and leather, it has become an icon of Spanish design. Its name comes from the influences that inspired the designer: Antoni GaudĂ­ and Carlo Mollino. Soft felt glides included.


Oscar Tusquets Blanca

Born in Barcelona in 1941, Oscar Tusquets Blanca, with the first name written without an accent and accompanied by both his surnames, as he likes it, usually presents himself publicly as an architect by training, a designer by adaptation, a painter by vocation and a writer through the desire to make friends. In other words, the prototype of the complete artist that the specialisation of the modern world has steadily driven to extinction. He graduated as an architect in 1965 from Barcelona’s Escuela TĂ©cnica Superior de Arquitectura and was a member of Studi Per, together with Pep Bonet, Cristian Cirici, LluĂ­s Clotet and Mireia Riera, with all of whom he set out in 1972 on the adventure of Bd, where he began his work as a designer of furniture and objects, thanks to which he has won the Spanish National Design Award and seen a number of his pieces appear in the collections of such major museums as the MoMA in New York and the Centre George Pompidou in Paris. His professional career as a whole has been honoured with the Medalla de Oro al MĂ©rito en las Bellas Artes [Gold Medal for Merit in the Fine Arts], the insignia of Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres [Knight of the Order of the Arts and Letters] and the Creu de Sant Jordi [Cross of Sant Jordi]. In 1994, he showed himself as an essayist with his book Más que discutible [More Than Disputable] (Tusquets Editores), which was followed by Todo es comparable [Everything is Comparable], Dios lo ve [God Sees It] and Contra la desnudez [Against Nudity] (all three titles for Editorial Anagrama). He is also the author of DalĂ­ y otros amigos [DalĂ­ and Other Friends] (RqueR Editorial).
