Torres Clavé Armchair

Josep Torres Clavé - 1934

In 1934 the architect Josep Torres Clavé designed the GATCPAC or Torres Clavé armchair as part of the furniture that was to house the Spanish Republic Pavilion designed by Josep Lluís Sert at the 1937 Paris International Exposition, which also exhibited works such as Pablo Picasso's Guernica and others by Alexander Calder and Joan Miró. 

The design is inspired by traditional Ibizan stalls with popular roots, which Torres Clavé reinterpreted from a rationalist point of view. This original model is made of riverside wood and handmade braided natural fiber rope.

An armchair that, due to its functional and aesthetic qualities and its particular history, has become an icon of modern Spanish design.
