Well stored: Where to put all your things?

Whether proudly presenting or skillfully concealing their contents, the new bureaus, sideboards and shelf units at the Milan Furniture Fair deserve our complete attention.
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 t
ime, BD reproduced other furniture and lamps. Ideas were drawn from Dalí’s own drawing projects and paintings. This is the same with the Xai. We broke up the painting, "Interpretation Project for a stable-library”, where there appears a characteristic Dal
í 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 Dalí (many of Dalí’s pieces – bears, lions, lobste
r, 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.
With the approval of the Gala Salvador Dalí Foundation, BD has decide
d to launch a limited edition of twenty white lambs, and one unique version in black. Naturally, as each piece is unique, each little table is in reality an only piece.
