Casa Batll, Barcelona, Spain
Casa Batll is a renowned building located in the heart of Barcelona and is one of Antoni Gaudis masterpieces. Casa Batll is a remodel of a previously built house. It was redesigned in 1904 by Gaud and has been refurbished several times after that. Casa Batll evokes the creativity and playfulness of Gauds work through the incracite facades and creative floors. Gaud's assistants Domnec Sugraes i Gras, Josep Canaleta and Joan Rubi also contributed to the renovation project. The local name for the building is Casa dels ossos (House of Bones), as it has a visceral, skeletal organic quality. It was originally designed for a middle-class family and situated in a prosperous district of Barcelona. The building looks very remarkable like everything Gaud designed, only identifiable as Modernisme or Art Nouveau in the broadest sense. The ground floor, in particular, is rather astonishing with tracery, irregular oval windows and flowing sculpted stone work.
Giant 150x100cm Direct Print on Brushed Aluminium – Pure elegance with an exclusive BUTLERFINISH® look. The photo is printed directly onto a 3 mm thick, sturdy brushed aluminium Dibond with a BUTLERFINISH® look. Two thin aluminium sheets sandwich a black polyethylene core to ensure maximum stability and water resistance. Thanks to the brushed surface, the aluminium backing gives the artwork an extraordinary, metallic appearance. During production of the cover sheet, the surface is ground horizontally to produce a brushed effect. The result is eye-catching: The areas of the photograph that are white or very light are not printed, but instead take on the appearance of the brushed aluminium surface.
The direct UV-print is colour-fast, light-resistant, and even damp-proof. The artwork on brushed aluminium Dibond is therefore not only suitable for indoor areas such as the bathroom or the kitchen, but also for covered outdoor areas protected from rain and direct sunlight. The aluminium Dibond backing is extremely light, and the practical hanging system ensures it is easy to hang on the wall, even with large formats. Simply unpack the artwork, hang it up, and enjoy its floating, metallic effect on your wall.
