Barcelona Design Dalilips – Salvador Dali-inspired outdoor sofa

Dalips

Not just a sofa, but a sofa with a heritage and a sofa you can use outdoors – the Barcelona Design Dalilips sofa.

This is a modern-day update of Salvador Dali’s famous red lips sofa, apparently inspired by Dali’s painting of Mae West and specifically, her lips in that image. That art-based fantasy was later turned into a sofa by French designer Jean-Michel Frank and Spanish designer Oscar Tusquets (in 1972), but only became commercially available from 2002.

This most-recent version from Barcelona Design is made of a durable spin-moulded polyurethane for outdoor use, with a choice of colours from the famous red through to monochrome black and white. Not cheap though – expect to pay £1,610 for this piece of art history.
