The Gualino Collection by Oscar Tusquets
There is a sensual pleasure that catches the eye in a design by Oscar Tusquets. Tusquets describes himself as “an architect by training, a designer by adaptation, a painter by vocation, and a writer through the desire to make friends.”
His work sits in innovative extremes. He creates Italian furniture designs that surprise the eye and are functional. With an elegant and iconic silhouette, the Gaulino style is recognisable and constantly striking.
“The Gaulino Family was born in 1987. The first member of the family was a chair. The most difficult to design. The one that defined a style.” Oscar Tusquets
That chair was the Gaulino chair. It has an artisanal wooden structure covered with a hand-stitched leather seat. It was designed in 1987, and the chair was his most influential and contemporary piece, that converted into a Spanish design legend. To create ‘Gaulino,’ Tusquets took the imagination and architecture of Antoni Gaudi and blended the sensual lines of Carlo Mollino. The infamous chair is no longer alone. Its fibrous structure has evolved into a series of elegant tables, a variation of chairs, and a stool.
The structures of this Italian furniture are light and organic. Although it looks experimental and artisanal, the Gaulino was Tusquets’ first industrially handcrafted design. However, the textures left by the dyed and varnished ash are unique. Smoked glass tabletops allow you to see the supporting structures and skeletal frames show their distinctive grain. Tusquets’ use of wood, ‘allows each specimen to be different from the others.’ Tusquets created shapes that are sinuous and eccentric.
