GATCPAC



Torres Clavé, an architect who was taken from us too early in the Spanish Civil War, founded GATCPAC, a group that sought to foster rationalist architecture in Catalonia and thus sympathised with the German Bauhaus and the modern movement. Along with his colleagues Sert, Subirana and others he designed a lamp that they offered as a gift in the buildings they erected, occasionally customising one detail or another as if laying down their collective signature. This is the GATCPAC lamp that Santa & Cole are re-editing according to Torres Clavé’s plans, thought to be the first and the original lamp of the many variations the group produced.

It has a metal base and a tall shaft with a broad cross-section like an unsheathed column. At the top, a joint that can be adjusted by hand grips a dome-shaped shade that can be directed upwards (for indirect light) or to one side or the other (for direct light). This feature transforms it into a household light – a machine à illuminer – with a strict purpose, far from Greek or Roman historicist evocations. A flawlessly modern piece.


The GATCPAC lamp is part of the Design Classics collection, a series of objects created at different times of modernism with the twofold aim of strengthening historical memory – which is sometimes endangered – and putting forward critical discussion on creation in industrial design beyond mere trends.

Author


Barcelona, 1906 - 1939

An architect, designer, town planner and revolutionary, his is one of the most outstanding Spanish avant-garde artistic and social names of the 30s. He was one of the people who introduced the Modern Movement into Spain and is the author of emblematic modern works. Some of his furniture and lamp designs are still produced today, over 60 years after his death.

He studied architecture at Barcelona School of Architecture, graduating in 1929. He began his career, while still a student, in the studio of his uncle Jaume Torres Grau and later with projects carried out in collaboration with Josep Lluís Sert, with whom he went into partnership in 1930.
