These are once again designs by Salvador Dali: the Vis-à-vis de Gala armchair, solid wood structure and Parma violet colour silk upholstery, back-rest upper trim in polished lacquered cast brass ending in a hand on each side, as if they were two long arms which embrace you when you sit. Next to the sofa, a Bracelli floor lamp, with a pale varnished beech wood structure covered in fine gold leaf and supported by a “crutch,” and a Cajones table lamp, with that drawer which swallows the cable. The interior designer Jean-Michel Frank collaborated in these pieces – he usually worked in the production of Dali’s furniture designs. All these pieces are in line with the surrealism of this genius’ works.
