Jaume Sans’ public facet portrays him as a surrealist sculptor and painter, and a member of the ADLAN group, the supporters of which included such prominent figures as Dalí, Miró and Calder, all acquaintances of the GATCPAC architects with whom they shared their social venue in Passeig de Gràcia in pre-Spanish Civil War Barcelona. In his private life, Jaume Sans was the father of many children who became big names in the field of Catalan design (such as Pete Sans) and, on occasions, he also created several pieces for family use, such as his Pie de Salón.
With a minimalist structure, the central shaft – covered in leather to lend it an improved feel – can be adjusted in height from the top and opens out onto a simple tripod base, allowing the cable to easily pass through. Shades in a range of colours and finishes can be used to give an impression of uncommon, warm, uncomplicated timelessness.
