On 19th May, an exhibition opens at the Rafael Masó Foundation which will present an anthological vision of the architecture of detached houses in Catalonia during the Noucentisme period. We at the Museu del Disseny will be doing our bit with the loan of two interior designs by Antoni Badrinas.
The exhibition, curated by Mercè Vidal, will be titled «La casa noucentista: arquitectura unifamiliar a Catalunya (1913-1932)» [The Noucentista House; the architecture of detached houses in Catalonia (1913-1932)] and will take a tour through eighteen representative houses and several architects who lived in the first decades of the twentieth century.
The two designs relate to interior drawings for private houses designed by Antoni Badrinas Escudé, a Catalan painter, furniture and decorator born in Terrassa in the late nineteenth century. Badrinas had his own furniture shop in Barcelona, and won an award at the Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Paris in 1925.
The exhibition «La casa noucentista: arquitectura unifamiliar a Catalunya (1913-1932)» can be seen at the headquarters of the Masó Foundation in Girona from 19th May to 10th November, 2018.
