Modern Furniture Design – Black Label Table
Famous Spanish artist Salvador Dali gets involved with interior design a few times in his career. He designs the garden furniture for his home in Port Lligat, the architecture of the Night Club for the Hotel Presidente in Acapulco and a bar project in California in the 1940s. The painting that inspires part of the modern furniture collection is called “Femme à latête rose”. Drawn in 1935 it includes the elegantly shaped low table and the so-called Leda chair. They both have their legs finished in the shape of a woman’s high-heel shoe and completely flat horizontal surfaces for, respectively sitting and placing objects.
Modern Furniture Design – Black Label Lamps
The other pieces of modern furniture are inspired by sketches Dali had drawn for his friend and furniture designer Jean-Michel Frank in 1937. All the pieces in the collection are based on black color. Casted brass together with aged black patina are used for the table and chair and black marble for the egg, for the upholstery and lingerie – chiffon darkened gold leaf and dyed lime wood satin in black and also black for the lamp shades.

The collection from 2009 is a limited edition and quickly arises interest among connoisseurs. The most attractive feature of this modern furniture design is how ideas from years ago are brought back to life in the contemporary spirit by using handcrafted manufacturing and refined materials. The design is inspired by art and that is why it can be considered as both a piece of modern furniture and a piece of art.
