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.
