The precedent for the furniture designed by Salvador Dalí is the famous sofa in the shape of a mouth which the artist created together with Oscar Tusquets in 1972 for the Mae West room at the Dalí Museum in Figueres.
More than thirty years had to pass before it became possible to put this sensual design into industrial production. Thanks to polyethylene rotational moulding technology using a special process which gives the piece a slightly delicate feel, it has been possible to reproduce the realism and expressive force which Dalí dreamt of for this large-scale mouth which you can sit on or sink into.
