In the swinging thirties, famous surrealist Salvador Dalí hung out with a number of cool people from varied disciplines in Paris, including furniture designer Jean-Michel Frank. He sketched a bunch of furniture designed for Frank, including the Leda chair and low table in the 1935 Femme à latête rose.

Six decades later in the 1990s, Oscar Tusquets and a team including sculptor Joaquim Camps brought these designs into the real world. Bd Barcelona design took care of production and marketing. It all looks just so cool.
