Oscat Tusquets Blanca: "It is a great pleasure to see that Bd is going to launch an improved re-edition of the historic Gaulino chair which, designed in 1987, was selected for the Industrial Design Prize and Adi-Fad in1989 and in Iberdiseño in 1990. Since then it has always been included in the retrospective shows of Spanish Design, in both exhibitions and publications, and has become a point of reference in twentieth century design in our country. In this work, some critics detected my admiration for Salvador Dalí but, when I saw it finished, I thought that the clearest influences came from Antoni Gaudí and Carlo Mollino: this is why the chair was called Gaulino. Although its appearance is totally handmade, the Gaulino was my first really industrial project in wood; with it I discovered just what machines could do and make. I learned and enjoyed it very much and I think it is one of my best works".
