Salvador Dali Surrealist 'Salivasofa' Unique Prototype Red Lips Sofa

About

Salivasofá: First prototype sofa designed by Salvador Dalí & Oscar Tusquets, 1972. The measurements are: 175 x 110 x 80 cm -The material in which it is manufactured is polyurethane foam coated with a red polidur coating. The word Dali can be appreciated on the bottom left hand side, along with some creases to imitate lip creases. The realization of the Salivasofá project began in 1972 when Oscar Tusquets proposed to Salvador Dalí to reproduce in three dimensions and to real scale the painting completed in 1936 called, “Retrato de Mae West pudiendo ser utilizado Como sala de estar” (Portrait of the Mae West being used as a living room) in the Theater Museum (Teatro Museo) in Figueras. In 1974, everything was prepared for the development and production of the Salivasofá which eventually never reached realization. Only six prototypes were ever made. We knew that one existed the one at the Mae West living Room in Dali’s Theater Museum in Figueas, until the awareness of this present sofa, the only proptipype available in the market. In original condition with wear consistent of age and use. It has some scratches and cracks on the foam as shown on the photos.
