" The Gaulino Chair is one of my best designs, for sure. It occurred to us that we could do a personalised limited edition, and we decided to do 20 pieces where I would personally paint the seats. It's a chair with nearly no straight forms, it's a very Gaudí chair in this aspect. The same as the Pedrera - it reminds me of a women's hair, so this chair sometimes reminds me of a women. After giving much thought, I found that a coherent image came to me with the chair being between a bottom and a heart and that's what I'm trying to transmit painting the cowhide seat to take further and beyond this sensuality "

" 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. "
