Salvador Dali Rinocerontico Knob for BD

About the Item

Knob Rinocerontico designed by Salvador Dali produced by BD design. Three polished lacquered cast bronze pieces joined together. Measures: 13 x 19 x 24 H cm During the 1930s in Paris, Salvador Dalí surrounded himself with a circle of friends involved in the application of art to varied disciplines, above and beyond the study of pure pictorial art. Jean-Michel Frank, a furniture maker and decorator of recognized prestige in the Paris of those years, was on very good terms with Dalí and together they worked on several ideas. The Bracelli lamp which we present here is a Classic design after Jean-Michel’s manner of designing and working, adopted by Dalí for his house at Portlligat. Amongst Dalí ’s specific furnishing projects, and constituting another for his curriculum vitae as a designer, may be counted the garden furnishings for his Portlligat house, the complete architecture of the Night Club (garotte-shaped) for the Hotel Presidente in Acapulco (1957) and another project for a bar in California in the ‘forties. As shown by the small selection now produced and included in this catalogue, Dalí ’s work was not restricts to the traditional furnishing elements, but included tap fittings, handles, door-pulls, printed fabrics and objets of indeterminate use. In the 1990s a group of experts, led by Oscar Tusquets, set themselves the task of turning the furniture Dalí had drawn for Jean-Michel Frank into reality. Amongst these items were the Leda chair and low table, taken from the painting “Femme à la tête rose” (1935). Each exquisite piece is meticulously handcrafted by skilled artisans, infusing it with a sense of individuality and artistry. The process of creating each item ensures that no two pieces are exactly alike, as subtle variations and unique characteristics emerge through the artisan's touch. These distinctive qualities may manifest as slight differences in texture, small scratches, or variations in the brass finish, serving as a testament to the authentic craftsmanship and the human element invested in every creation. Furthermore, as part of the inherent charm of these handcrafted pieces, some variations might present themselves as occasional stains or slight tone differences on the surface, adding to the allure of their uniqueness. Embracing these variations, our handcrafted pieces must be considered sculptures, each one telling a story of the artisan's dedication and evoking a sense of timeless elegance that cannot be replicated by mass-produced alternatives. These nuances celebrate the organic nature of the crafting process and contribute to the character and soul of every item, elevating it from mere decor to a cherished masterpiece in its own right.
