Gaulinetta Chair, designed by Oscar Tusquets Blanca for BD Barcelona Design, is an evolution of the Gaulino chair. This time it has no armrests and is a little smaller, but the chair is surprisingly just as comfortable. This is an ideal chair for dining table and and after its use it can be easily tucked away under the table. In homage to Enzo Mari, who called his chair Tonietta, a derivative of Thonet, Oscar Tusquets has called this chair Gaulinetta, after the Gaulino.
The original Gaulino chair was designed in 1987. BD re-edited it and improved it in 2010. It is probably one of the best designs by Oscar Tusquets. Even though its appearance is totally artisanal, it was his first real wooden industrial project, taking into consideration the sizes of the machines, so that they could make the turns which model the legs.
Gaulinetta Chair is ideal for multiple purposes in both private and commercial spaces, from meeting rooms to auditoriums and around the dining table.
The chair is available in three finishes: Natural, Black or Coral Red. Please make your selection from the Finish option above.
The Gaulinetta Chair is part of the Gaulino collection of chairs and tables.
Architect and designer by profession, painter and writer by vocation, Oscar Tusquets Blanca is the prototype of the all-round artist.

In 1975 he executes, with his Master and best friend Salvador Dalí, the Mae West Room in the Figuera’s Teatro-Museo. After working for several years with the architect Carlos Díaz, in 1987 they formed a partnership to develop their projects in the fields of urban planning, architecture, interior design and architectural design, both in Spain and France, and also in Holland, Germany and Japan.
