CALVET | Coat rack
Wall-mounted coat rack
In contrast with what happened in general to almost all the Modernista furniture which ended up going out of fashion, furniture designed by Gaudí is still as modern today as it was when it was first designed. Perhaps this is because it is more reminiscent of sculpture than mere benches and chairs. The Calvet armchair is outstanding amongst these designs because of its expressive force. It was designed along with four other pieces –a stool, a mirror, a chair and a bench– for the house of the same name.
BD world-wide exclusively presents the Calvet Hanger. An original design by Antoni Gaudí dating back to 1903 and possibly the smallest piece the architect ever made. We have re-edited this piece and is now part of our Art Editions catalogue.
